TUF 25 Finale: Justin Gaethje Storms Back to Finish Michael Johnson
By FCF Staff
Although Justin Gaethje was wobbled a couple of times tonight at the TUF 25 Finale, the former WSOF champ stormed back to stop Michael Johnson.
Johnson appeared to be moments away from finishing Gaethje more than once, but the latter managed to recover and continued to press forward. Later in round two, Gaethje proceeded to stun Johnson with a punch, and then continued to punish the latter until the fight was mercifully stopped.
In the finals for TUF 25, Jesse Taylor submitted Dhiego Lima with a second round, rear-naked-choke.
