When the opening bell rang, Barry started working his patented leg kicks on Johnson, but Johnson made it clear he didn’t want to stay on the outside. Johnson immediately pushed forward and clinched with Barry against the fence, throwing heavy leather.
Barry broke out of the clinch and surprisingly shot for a takedown. Johnson stuffed it, but lost position, Barry moving from full mount to side control. Barry had the advantage grappling, but Johnson got an underhook and worked back to his feet.
Johnson felt another leg kick, but then fired off a kick of his own that backed Barry up against the fence. From there, Johnson pressured Barry against the cage with a barrage of punches. This time Barry went down and looked out against the cage, as Johnson was awarded the TKO victory at the 4:38 mark.
With the win over Barry, Johnson moves his UFC record to an impressive 2-0 with both of his fights being finished in the first round.
