The 6-year run as the Flyweight Champion came to an end for Johnson after Henry Cejudo defeated him via split decision at UFC 227. Cejudo went onto vacate the title in December 2019, which was later on won by the current champion Deiveson Figueiredo who defeated Joseph Benavidez in July 2020.


Deiveson Figueiredo went onto defend his title in 2020 against Alex Perez and Brandon Moreno at UFC 255 and UFC 256 respectively. While he submitted Perez with a guillotine choke to defend the title, his match with Moreno ended in a majority draw which led to Figueiredo still being the champion.
