“We all have good fundamentals. We all keep our hands up, we all have good footwork, we all know how to stay in our distance range, we all have good clinches. Some gyms, they all have a good guillotine or good at scrambling. With this gym, we all have a great base and that comes from the fact that everyone who trains at AMC started here. Anyone who fights out of AMC has been bred and raised there.” (PHOTO CREDIT: David Banks-USA TODAY Sports)
UFC flyweight champ Demetrious Johnson (18-2-1) may be the #1 flyweight in Mixed Martial Arts but even “Mighty Mouse” would admit he still has room for improvement. In hopes of maximizing his potential, Johnson has put in countless hours at AMC Pankration and expects to show off the fruits of his labor tonight at UFC on FOX 9 when he faces Joseph Benavidez (19-3) in the evening’s headlining effort. The 27-year old title-holder recently spoke to the UFC.com about his second scrap with Benavidez, expressing confidence in his ability to come out on top again based on hard work, overcoming adversity, and much more.
