Beltran vs. Johnson Wiki Update Wiki

Beltran and Johnson took to the cage for a heavyweight bout.


Beltran refused to touch hands at the start of the bout then got dropped momentarily when Johnson dug in a hook to the ribs. Johnson clinched Beltran against the cage and softened him up with knees to the body. The fighters broke off the cage and Johnson landed a nice leg kick then a series of stiff jabs that popped Beltran's head back. Beltran began to wilt under the continued steady pressure of Johnson's strikes, which he alternated nicely between the head and body. Beltran came back with some flurries of his own as Johnson slowed in the final minute. Suddenly Johnson landed an uppercut against the cage that knocked Beltran out, and a few more uppercuts kept him up on his feet before the referee stepped in to save him.


The official end came 4:24 into the first round, giving Johnson the TKO victory in his UFC debut.
