MMAWeekly.com brings you Lavar Johnson from Wednesday’s UFC 146 open workouts in Las Vegas. Johnson stepped up on short notice to face the formidable Stefan Struve, but had no hesitation in doing so.

“I said I’ll take it right away. I’m a fighter, that’s what we do. I can’t be afraid of anybody in the UFC or what am I doing here?” said Johnson.

And that’s the attitude Johnson will need when he steps into the Octagon with Struve at UFC 146 on Saturday night.
