UFC on Versus 6 treated the US capital, Washington DC, to a bantamweight title fight, and they got a card where only two fights went the distance, to boot. One of the two was the said title fight, between Dominick Cruz and Demetrious Johnson.

Cruz dominated all five of the rounds, landing sightly takedowns and even a power-laden supplex, connected with potent knees, took back mount and came close to finishing with a choke. Demetrious Johnson ended up with an unsightly swollen mound on his cheek and, after the fifth-round bell had sounded, the judges had the easy task of handing the unanimous decision win to Cruz, who defended his title for the second time and notched the 19th win in his 20-fight career, where his sole loss was duly avenged.

Also on the main card, Stefan Struve submitted Pat Barry with an armbar from the triangle, Anthony Johnson knocked out Charlie Brenneman, and Matt Wiman outdid Mac Danzig with a unanimous decision.

On the preliminary card, Yves Edwards steered clear of some hazardous moments to counter with a knockout over Rafaello “Trator”.
