Michael Johnson Talks About Gambling His 2-0 Run On Short Notice
Posted by Joseph Lee on 03.07.2014



In an interview with MMA Junkie, Michael Johnson (14-8 MMA, 6-4 UFC) spoke about taking a fight with Melvin Guillard (31-12-2 MMA, 12-8 UFC) on short notice, risking his current 2-0 run. They will fight in the co-main event of UFC Fight Night 37 (12:30 p.m. ET, UFC Fight Pass) at the O2 Arena in London.

On short notice fights: "Short-notice fights aren't a big deal for me. I'm always in shape, I'm always training, I'm always getting ready for fights. I'm not sitting around on the couch after fights. I'm a fighter."

On building momentum: "You never want to stop the momentum. It's like sitting at the blackjack table in a casino. If you're on a streak, you're not going to get up. You want to keep riding it out. You've got to keep it going."

On being in a different frame of mind than his last undefeated streak: "I fell into a zone where I felt like I couldn't be beat at that point. I got a little ahead of myself, and my head got a little big. I lost to two guys I shouldn't have lost to. But I got my (stuff) together, I turned it around in the gym, and now those two fights are completely forgotten about. I beat two of the best lightweights in the division, and now I'm ready to take another one."
