UFC 126 Results - Demetrious Johnson Decisions Norifumi "Kid" Yamamoto

Norifumi Yamamoto was once considered one of the top pound-for-pound fighters in the sport of mixed martial arts. He made his UFC debut at UFC 126 against Demetrious Johnson. Johnson wasted no time in making it clear that the time of "Kid" Yamamoto has passed.

For three straight rounds Johnson ducked under the punches of Yamamoto to secure takedowns. Even though Kid was able to get back to his feet in every case it let Johnson set the pace for the fight and win all three rounds on the SB Nation scorecard. Johnson also handled himself ably on the feet, occasionally getting caught but landing solid flurries of his own.

The judges scorecards read 29-28, 30-27 and 30-27 all for Demetrious Johnson.
