    Man, lots of folks are sleeping on Johnson in this upcoming fight with Artem.

    I do think he has sacrificed some of his power dropping down to FW, but dude has HANDS.

    He's definitely faster than Lobov, with obviously a much longer reach. lol

    I think he may tune up Artem from range in this one. We know for certain that both these guys prefer to stand & bang.

    He absolutely cleaned Castillos clock here. Left homie staring up at the lights, unconscious. Brutal KO.

    Who do you think takes it between Johnson & Lobov?

    Johnson has good shots on the ground as well.

    Well Artem trains with a guy with hands equally fast and more precise.

    Lobov Finishes Johnson in Rd one and calls out Khabib for taking longer. Sets up the first ever UFC tag team match. Conor/Lobov v Khabib/Islam with Chiesa as guest referee

    Yeah, after Castillo 10-8'd him in round 1.

    Seriously Castillo has some of the worst luck in UFC history.

    Lost a close split to Ferguson. http://www.mmadecisions.com/decision/5433/Tony-Ferguson-vs-Danny-Castillo
    10-8'd Johnson in rd1.
    10-8'd Barboza in rd1 (utter robbery, was clearly a draw: http://www.mmadecisions.com/decisio...o;jsessionid=BE85DFC5BB40684FA4BEF0CC9FAC29B7)
    Split to Lentz
    Split to Miller

    No, Johnson looked far faster against Khabib than Conor did. He even made Guillard look slow.

    I truly hope MJ decimates Artem to pulp. The only reason why this fraud is in the UFC is because of his fraud friend, Conman.

    Obviously Johnson is going to win. He's at -500 and should be even a bigger favorite. What is Lobov's path to victory? Knock him out despite being at a huge reach disadvantage and speed disadvantage. Yeah, no. There's a less than 10% chance of that happening, probably less than 5%. Lobov has never knocked anybody out in the UFC.

    It's a fun fight for fans because we get to see Artem lose and, as a bonus, we know it won't be his last fight in the UFC because he is earning brownie points with Dana for accepting the fight with Johnson as a replacement. Hopefully, his next fight will be with one of Khabib's teammates.

    Artemov should take this handily and set himself up for a title shot.

    And speaking of Danny Castillo, his split decision against Tony Ferguson is a good watch. All 3 rounds ended with Castillo on top and Ferguson unable to get up. A preview of how Khabib will control Ferguson relatively easily.

    Ugly? That was a perfectly timed counter straight off of a leg kick. Johnson looks weird when he throws but he's got amazing boxing.

    MJ actually landed on Khabib and almost rocket him.

    He did better than Conor.

    True, but Tony has modified his style quite a bit from that fight. He is MUCH more aggressive off of his back then he was back then.
