UFC Vegas 54: Michael Johnson scores impressive KO victory

Michael Johnson was once one of the hottest prospects in the UFC lightweight division. Last night he delivered a statement knock out, making a case for himself to stay in the UFC.

Johnson defeated Alan Patrick with a very good combination capped off with an impressive left hook.

“My performance speaks for itself,” Johnson said afterwards. “The journey was rough. I was in a dark, dark place. I saw the light and just got out of that dark hole.

“That still shows people I’m one of the best strikers in this division. I’ve got a lot to climb, I’m onto the next step.”

Johnson had four losses in a row coming into tonight.

The finish came in round two after Johnson scored a really nice body shot that visibly hurt Patrick.

With this victory Johnson’s record stands at 20 wins and 17 losses.Johnson previously lost to Clay Guida and Thiago Moises. Prior to tonight, his last victory came in 2018 against Artem Lobob.
