Surely everyone in this thread has watched all of his fights that are available?!
How many of Arbachakov, Sasakuls, Megdoens, Pongsaklek's fights have you watched? Fact is, Johnson was not the best flyweight in the World. Obviously you're a fan of his (as am I) but with all the evidence surely you can't think he beat a sufficient calibre of fighter to reach the pinnacle of the division?
