The flyweight division has been put on notice as Jussier Formiga surely cements his place atop the flyweight ladder after an impressive performance over Ben Nguyen at UFC 221
In an entertaining scrap, Jussier Formiga (21-5) landed a huge spinning back fist to drop the Australian Ben Nguyen (16-7) to the canvas.
Rather than opting to go for the finish with punches, Formiga took Ngueyn’s back with ease and sunk in a rear naked choke to gain victory and stake a claim at flyweight champion, Demetrious Johnson.
