By Brian Knapp Apr 24, 2015

Five men -- John Dodson, John Moraga, Joseph Benavidez, Ali Bagautinov and Chris Cariaso -- have tried and failed to remove Demetrious Johnson from atop the Ultimate Fighting Championship flyweight division. Kyoji Horiguchi will now take his turn.

Johnson tipped the scales at 124.5 pounds, as he prepares to defend his flyweight crown against the once-beaten Horiguchi (124.5) in the UFC 186 main event on Saturday at the Bell Centre in Montreal. Catchweight co-headliners Quinton Jackson (216) and Fabio Maldonado (215) also met their contracted weight requirements without issue at Friday’s official weigh-in.

UFC 186 “Johnson vs. Horiguchi” -- which airs on pay-per-view at 10 p.m. ET/7 p.m. PT -- will also feature a middleweight scrap pairing “The Ultimate Fighter” Season 3 winner Michael Bisping (186) with C.B. Dollaway (185.5), a catchweight tilt pitting John Makdessi (160) against Shane Campbell (161) and a bantamweight battle matching undefeated former Legacy Fighting Championship titleholder Thomas Almeida (135) with Yves Jabouin (136).

Two hours prior, Fox Sports 1 will carry four preliminary bouts: Patrick Cote (171) vs. Joe Riggs (171), Alexis Davis (135) vs. Sarah Kaufman (136), Chad Laprise (156) vs. Bryan Barberena (156) and Olivier Aubin-Mercier (155) vs. David Michaud (156).
