After losing in the finals of the Ultimate Fighter, Michael Johnson went 4-3 over the next two years. Recently however, Johnson has defeated two of the lightweight divisions top veterans in Joe Lauzon and Gleison Tibau, and now believes he can make a run at the UFC lightweight title:
“I’m really not in the business of calling people out,” Johnson said. “I want anybody who is in front of me. If you’re in front of me, if you’re in a position in front of me, I want to fight you.”
After two big wins in 2013, Johnson will enter the new year with a full head of steam and the momentum of unrivaled personal success. He foresees a landmark year in 2014. The best opponents in the world stand in his way of getting there, but Johnson said he’s ready to defeat any of them.
“Wherever I am in the rankings doesn’t matter,” Johnson said. “Put someone in front of me who leads to the title, and I’ll beat them.”
