Maveryk Allen Johnson will get to see his proud father’s first title defense, if he can stay awake long enough.
Demetrious Johnson and his wife, Destiny, welcomed the newborn on Wednesday. Maveryk weighed in at eight pounds and 13 ounces, just a few away from “Mighty Mouse,” who is the reigning UFC flyweight champion.
“Officially a father of two,” Johnson posted on Instagram, along with a picture of his wife and new son holding a glove with “UFC” on it.
Johnson returns to the Octagon next Saturday, defending his title against Kyoji Horiguchi at UFC 186.
