The UFC’s latest edition of “Fight Motion” with super slow-motion highlights is out, and in it we can see just how amazing flyweight champ Demetrious Johnson’s finish was.
In the co-main event, in the fifth round, Johnson (27-2-1 MMA, 15-1-1 UFC) picked up challenger Ray Borg (11-3 MMA, 5-3 UFC) for a suplex, and before he even hit the ground he took his left arm for an armbar finish for the ages. The win was Johnson’s 11th consecutive title defense, which broke Anderson Silva’s UFC record.
In the video above, check out the super slow-motion highlights from the action at UFC 216 this past Saturday at T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas. The main card aired on pay-per-view following prelims on FX and UFC Fight Pass.
The “Fight Motion” highlights also include the main event, which saw Tony Ferguson (24-3 MMA, 14-1 UFC) submit Kevin Lee (16-3 MMA, 9-3 UFC) to become the UFC’s interim lightweight champion to set up a likely fight against champ Conor McGregor.
