Fight Night Kansas City: Demetrious Johnson – Chasing PerfectionDemetrious Johnson continues his chase at perfection in Kansas City, as he attempts to defend his belt for the 10th consecutive time.2017-04-14T17:42:18.000Z

Widely regarded as the pound-for-pound UFC champ right now, “Mighty Mouse”, whose last loss came in October 2011, would tie Anderson Silva’s record for most consecutive title defenses with a win Saturday night. But he’s not prepared to stop there.

“Ten is just a stepping stone. The ultimate goal is 11,” he said. “It’s like Floyd Mayweather when he got to 49-0. Why would you stop there? You can easily get to 50-0 and be the only fighter to ever do it. No, I’m going past 10; my goal is to go past 10.”

For Reis, it’s his first shot at UFC gold. He enters off three consecutive wins, and the Brazilian jiu-jitsu black belt has proven to be dangerous in close quarters, but he’s going to need a once-in-a-lifetime performance to end DJ’s reign.

And even that may not be enough.
