Biography
Known for his quick striking and elusive movement, Johnson has also landed the most takedowns in UFC flyweight history and co-holds the record for the latest finish in UFC history with a submission win at 4:59 of the fifth round against Kyoji Horiguchi. ESPN, MMA Weekly, and various UFC personnel have called Johnson one of the greatest mixed martial artists in the world. Sherdog historically ranked Johnson as the #9-pound-for-pound fighter in mixed martial arts and as the No.
Combat Approach
Known as one of the fastest fighters in MMA, Johnson's martial arts background is in wrestling, which he uses effectively to control where the fight takes place and land numerous takedowns in a single match when necessary. He is noted for his ability to land fast punches and kicks to the head or body, then quickly escape an opponent's reach. During upperbody clinches, Johnson has also utilized the Muay Thai plum while mixing in a series of elbows and knees.
Fighter Trivia
Johnson had a harsh childhood; he was raised by his deaf mother and an abusive stepfather. The main thing that has helped him move on from his past is his wife, Destiny Johnson. Johnson is an avid gamer and streams his gaming via Twitch with username mightygaming.
