UFC continued their run of entertainment with UFC Vegas 54 from the UFC Apex in Las Vegas. An intriguing bout on the prelims saw veteran UFC fighter Michael Johnson return to the Octagon against Brazilian Alan Patrick.
‘The Menace’ was looking to break the four-fight losing skid, whereas the 38-year-old Patrick finally fought inside the Octagon after having a tough couple of years, with only one bout that too ended in a no contest.
The 35-year-old Johnson looked in his grooves early in the fight as he rocked his counterpart with his fast & sharp hands. Though Patrick also caught him in the first round, Johnson showed how good his hands are when he knocked out Patrick in the second round with a vicious combination.
