    Dude is ripped at 6'9 & 250lbs (7'1" reach) and an elite athlete and he has some MMA experience:

    HW division is so shallow right now. UFC needs to make moves like these.

    He'd have to want to quit his multi-million dollar job first. But I agree snagging an athlete like that would be huge.

    He's on a 2 year, 5 million dollar contract with the Raptors...


    $2.5 million to not get punched in the face or 10k/10k? Hmmm...

    Johnson is a great defender and a terror in the post, if he could only shoot the 3 he would be a legit starter in NBA

    yeah he's a post scorer who can go on scoring runs. needs to rebound more for his size, don't think he will ever be a shooter though.

    he definitely would beat darko in a fight or one on one in basketball

    From his wiki. But does he have a fighter page? What does he have a 2nd degree black belt in?

    I can't find a sherdog page and wiki doesnt make mention of his fight career.

    Is there any source that this guy had a fight career?

    He should sign a contract that allows him to take fights once in a blue moon when he's bored during the off-season. He'd still do great in the joke that is the HW division due to his athleticism and size.
