Video: Countdown To UFC Fight Night 37 – Michael Johnson Knocks Out Gleison Tibau

The fight took place on the undercard of the Las Vegas event and was “The Menace’s” second straight win at lightweight. In his last fight Johnson put on a flawless performance to take a unanimous decision winner of Joe Lauzon.
Johnson’s knockout was the first time Tibau had been finished in seven years, the last time he was stopped was back in 2006 where he was TKO’d by Nick Diaz.
