Johnson vs. Guymon Wiki Update Wiki

The fifth bout of UFC Fight For the Troops 2 saw DaMarques Johnson take on Mike Guymon. Johnson, an Ultimate Fighter runner-up, came into the contest 2-2 in UFC competition. Guymon's UFC record stood at 1-2.


Guymon threw a low kick and shot for a takedown to begin the fight, but was defended by Johnson who got a takedown of his own into side control. Guymon regained guard but ate some powerful elbows from Johnson. Johnson passed to the side, to full mount, and then to the back all within a few seconds time. Johnson continued to work and roll with Guymon as he looked for submissions, only to have Guymon tap a moment later. Guymon, who appeared to injure his back or midsection in the grappling, verbally submitted.


Speaking to Joe Rogan in the post-fight interview, Johnson stated, "That was just one of those things where who likes foreplay with no orgasm... I was just looking to get pressure and get a good angle, he was a big strong guy with good wrist control."
