Tracking the championship: UFC flyweight division
The UFC's flyweight division was established in 2011, with the first 125-pound fights coming in early 2012 in the form of a four-man tournament to determine the division's first champion. That first champion is the only champion so far.

Successful title defenses: 8.
Demetrious Johnson became the first UFC flyweight champion when he beat Joseph Benavidez via split decision at UFC 152 on Sept. 22, 2012. In the four-plus years since, Johnson has beaten everyone in his path and become one of the top pound-for-pound fighters in the sport. Only three of his title defenses have gone the distance. Johnson's eight straight successful title defenses is third best in UFC history, behind Anderson Silva's 10 and Georges St-Pierre's nine.
