Amir Sadollah finishes Johnson in 2nd round with 'mean elbows'

by Damon Martin | source:

Damarques Johnson opted to take the fight on just over 2 weeks notices, and in the early going it looked like he made a good decision taking the fight. Johnson popped Sadollah with some good strikes before landing a beautiful judo throw midway through the first round.

That was however as good as the night got for Johnson because from that point on it was all Amir Sadollah.

The Las Vegas based fighter came out like a ball of fire in the 2nd round, coming after Johnson with everything in his arsenal, including the kitchen sink.

THANK YOU AMIR!!!!!! I bet on Amir to win AND finish it in the second round on Sportsbook!!!! Woohoo!!!!!! Thank you Amir!!!! Odds on Amir to win sucked but the 2nd round was 300. I'll take it! Plus a certain MMA site was wrong in predicting Damarques to win and did so out of bias just like when they were covering TUF and interviewing Damarques weekly. At least I got paid tonight!
