Michael Johnson:

“That fight against Gleison was a great one for me. I didn’t expect to finish him because he’s so tough but I was looking for the KO every second I was in that Octagon. It was important to my camp and my management team to get the victory because Gleison is a member of our rival gym ATT in Florida. The physical ability is automatic in this sport because everyone in the UFC is very gifted but the mental game is where I feel I have an edge.”

Gleison Tibau:

“I wasn’t able to use my leg kicks and takedowns the way we had planned to out there. I couldn’t really find my range or get my head movement going. I didn’t see the punch and wasn’t able to recover quick enough. I’ll get back in the gym and fix some mistakes.”
