Johnson vs. Castillo Wiki Update Wiki

Michael Johnson met Danny Castillo on the preliminary card of UFC on FX 5 in the lightweight division.

Round 1

After some quick striking exchanges, Castillo decided he had had enough of Johnson's Southpaw stance and took the fight to the mat. Johnson defended himself well from his back, but he ate a few solid punches and overall had few answers for Castillo's suffocating top control.

Round 2

After some tense exchanges in the second, Johnson flattened Castillo with a straight right and finished him off with some huge right hands on the ground for an emphatic KO victory.

The end came 1:06 into the second round, giving Johnson the KO victory.
