Demetrious (Mighty Mouse) Johnson proved he has Joseph Benavidez's number.

The flyweight champion scored a thunderous first-round knockout win against Benavidez in the main event of UFC on FOX 9 in Sacramento, Calif., Saturday.

Benavidez avoided the same pitfall that cost him their first encounter, remaining composed and refusing to chase Johnson with heavy punches.
