Not only did Johnson retain his flyweight title with that move against Ray Borg, he set the UFC record for most consecutive title defenses with 11. If you didn't think Johnson was one of the greatest of all-time prior to the bout, seeing something like that should change your opinion.

When you pull off a move that no one has ever thought of, much less seen, before, you're going to get the attention of everyone watching. Plenty of stars, from fellow UFC champions to pro wrestlers, plenty of people chimed in with their thoughts on Johnson's incredible finish.
