Demetrious Johnson appears to be getting the respect he’s long been missing.
After handily defeating Wilson Reis at UFC Kansas with an armbar in round three, and tying Anderson Silva’s record of ten title defences, Johnson was left in the middle of the Octagon proclaiming himself as the best champion of all time.
It’s starting to become harder and harder to argue with him.
As usual, plenty of professionals and high profile names in the world of mixed martial arts took to Twitter in the wake of the main event to offer their thoughts on proceedings. Here are a few examples:

@MightyMouseUFC has to be considered highly in that conversation. A heavyweight & the lightest weight class contender cant go up or down.
