Mighty Mouse up big

Demetrious Johnson is dominating Kyoji Horiguchi in UFC 186's main event. ESPN's Brett Okamoto has the champ up 4 rounds to 0.


Brett Okamoto @bokamotoESPN

Crowd is arguing with itself. This happened during Vancouver Johnson fight too. Boos, followed by aggressive counter cheers.

Brett Okamoto @bokamotoESPN

20-18 for the champ, Demetrious Johnson, after two. Starting to plant Horiguchi with takedowns pretty easy.

Brett Okamoto @bokamotoESPN

This storyline is well publicized by now but it is crazy how a DJ fight transports in a Japan crowd. There is no noise during his rounds.

Rampage screaming UFC is the best organization in the planet ... Thinking Bellator might consider that 'irreparable harm.'

Rampage returns with win

Quinton Jackson's last UFC win came in May 2011 but he got the nod from all three judges tonight against Fabio Maldonado.


Brett Okamoto @bokamotoESPN

Fabio spits his mouthpiece out, waves sorry, hastily drops to one knee picks it up and puts it back in. Yep.

Next up at UFC 186: Jackson-Maldonado

It was a long, court-filled road back to the Octagon for Quinton "Rampage" Jackson, but he's ready to step in and face Fabio Maldonado. It'll be the first UFC fight for Rampage since Jan. 26, 2013
