Lavar Johnson: "Thank God, I still have a job with the UFC!"


Picture
Lavar Johnson (17-7 MMA, 2-2 UFC) who lost his recent fight by decision (unanimous) at UFC 157 to “The Ultimate Fighter: Heavyweights” finalist Brendan Schaub (9-3 MMA, 5-3 UFC) will stay in the promotion.

The Strikeforce veteran Johnson still remains on UFC.com's active roster.

"Thank God, I still have a job with the UFC!" Lavar Johnson tweeted.


Johnson is a knockout machine; from 24 professional MMA fights he has 17 wins by KO and 2 by submission. His UFC career began pretty good as he knocked out Joey Beltran in round one at UFC on Fox: Evans vs. Davis on January 28, 2012 where he earned a “Knockout of the Night” bonus and Pat Berry by TKO (punches) also in round one at UFC on Fox: Diaz vs. Miller on May 5, 2012 where he again grabbed the “Knockout of the Night” bonus. But the next fight he lost to Dutch Stefan Struve by Submission (armbar) in round one at UFC 146 on May 26, 2012 in Las Vegas, Nevada.

So it’s not a surprise to me that Johnson felt that he could be the next victim of the massive UFC cut that happened recently.
