Johnson last fought just 12 days ago at UFC on FOX 3. He knocked out Pat Barry in the first round of their main card fight.
Both Struve and Johnson enter the fight riding two-fight winning streaks."
That's a really quick turnaround to fight a guy that I would think would be really hard to gameplan for. I respect Johnson for taking the fight. 2 wins in a month can really help you move up the HW ladder, also.
