Lavar Johnson Wiki Update Wiki

Johnson is one of the most exciting heavyweights today. His fights literally only end in finishes, he has never been to a decision in his career. He hits exceptionally hard even by Heavyweight standards with 15 of his 17 wins coming by way of KO/TKO.  He was the first fighter to KO the granite chin that belongs to Joey Beltran. While Johnson is a feared striker, his ground game leaves a lot to be desired. 

On July 5, 2009, Johnson was shot twice at a family gathering. He was shot in the abdomen and chest and left in critical condition. Luckily he survived the shooting and returned to MMA.
