Johnson Analysis: Veteran fighter looking for a belt
Michael Johnson is in his prime and could likely beat any lightweight on any given day. His impressive resume boasts wins against Tony Ferguson, Edson Barboza and Dustin Poirier as well as several others; yet, he’s never made that final step to become champion. Nate Diaz proved too tough an opponent; however he displayed great heart in returning against Diego Ferreira only to be knocked out early in Round 2. Both fighters present threats on the ground, with Johnson holding an edge due to his impressive grappling and jiu-jitsu skills, along with his demonstrated power when striking.
Darrius Flowers (12-6-1 MMA, 0-1 UFC) will try to get back on track in his 29th octagon appearance when he meets Michael Johnson on February 10. Johnson recently dropped a second-round loss against Diego Ferreira. Although Las Vegas air isn’t quite as harsh, it still has an effect on fighter conditioning and performance. When Flowers expressed his discontent to Johnson, this caused their relationship to go from friendly to antagonistic – adding an extra element of drama into this fight. Flowers is an exciting fighter to keep an eye on as he transitions to lighter weight class fights. He boasts some serious power that has been put to great use in his bouts and makes for a very dangerous opponent on the ground. Flowers has also shown some promising striking abilities and has proven difficult to stop.
