Michael Johnson was determined to win at last night’s UFC Fight Night 94 against opponent Dustin Poirer. Johnson needed a victory to get away from his previous two losses. Losing at the event would have meant his first three losing streak of his MMA career.
Luckily for Johnson, he was able to deliver that victory and to make a statement he also delivered it quite brutally. Within 95 seconds Johnson had knocked Poirer to the floor after delivering the almighty right-hand left-hook combination which secured him the victory.
Johnson who is in the 155lb weight range now has secured some confidence back within himself after his losing streak. Here’s how some people reacted to events:
Michael Johnson with some beautiful FAST counter punching. Puts Dustin Poirier down in R1. Then stands over him and taunts. Wow.

Did Michael Johnson just KO Poirier so hard that it knocked the ref's shoe off? Did that happen?

Oh dang. That was a murderous follow-up right after he dropped Poirier. But hey, man, maybe don't taunt a semi-conscious man afterward.
