Despite facing size disadvantages, Johnson skilfully navigated his way through to win the gold and silver medals. It makes one wonder about the skill level of Demetrious Johnson. People like Bradley Martyn must now wonder what would happen to them if they fought someone like Mighty Mouse.

An MMA return for Mighty Mouse remains in an uncertain mood. There is also a chance that ONE FC is waiting to put Johnson in an American card when the promotion returns to the US this year. However, Johnson has also not shown any interest or eagerness to return to the cage. He has started to compete in more BJJ tournaments in the last several months. It looks like it will continue in the future as well.
