UFC 172 Results: Anthony Johnson Impressive win, Jim Miller chokes Medeiros

This is a big win for Anthony Johnson as he dominated Phil Davis. Very impressive win. He was the underdog since many experts are expecting Davis to win, that he would be able to drop Johnson to the canvas and force out a decision. Davis wrestling skills is unmatched in mixed martial arts, and it was his clear advantage in securing a win. But that didn't happened,  since Johnson is clearly stronger than Davis, he shrugged him off with ease. Johnson has simply overpowered Davis.

In the lightweight division, Jim Miller has a great performance against Yancy Medeiros. Miller stalks Medeiros around the octagon, rocked him, then gave him the gulotine choke. The fight was over at the 3:18 mark. Medeiros went out instead of tapping out.

With an impressive win Miller is calling out top lightweights, "There are 9 guys ahead of me. Four of them are tied up or don't want to fight, so let me have one of the others. Khabib , Josh Thomson, T.J. Grant, give me any of them."

Miller is ranked No. 10 in the official UFC lightweight rankings.

In the main event of UFC 172, Jon Jones retain his championship by easily beaing Glover Teixeira but we were expecting that to happen.
