Demetrious Johnson looks to defend his title for the 9th consecutive time, as flyweight contender Wilson Reis steps up to the plate. It just goes to show, that the “The Ultimate Fighter 24” is definitely something that the division desperately needs. Not only will the winner of TUF 24 earn a title shot against Demetrious Johnson, but the influx of talent that will be enriched into the division is just as important. I mean, Wilson Reis is certainly a contender, but it’s not like he’s earned the title shot. He’s 3-2 in his last five fights, is coming off a win to Dustin Ortiz and is ranked #8 in mine and the UFC’s rankings. However, the way Johnson has cleared out the division, guys have been rushed into title shots. And, at least for me, this reminds me of the Chris Cariaso matchmaking.
