Lavar Johnson Says He's Happy to Be Fighting Again So Soon
Posted by Jeremy Thomas on 04.09.2014



Lavar Johnson spoke with MMAjunkie about his fight with Blagoi Ivanov at Bellator 116. Check out the highlights:

On competing in successive months: "This is great. The quick turnaround didn't give me any time to get out of shape. I stayed on the grind. I stayed in shape, everything was good, and I'm ready to get another paycheck."

On getting his confidence back: "I definitely needed to realize that I still do have the power in my hands to knock people out. I still got it as an old man."

On whether he can beat Vitaly Minakov: "Minakov is a real tough guy; he's really strong and everything. But Kongo is a smaller-framed guy. He had about 20 pounds on Kongo. I'm a little bit bigger, and I'll be a little harder to take down. I work on my ground game the same as everything. I would rather not go to the ground, and the fans would rather not have me on the ground. I would rather make it an exciting fight and punch each other until someone goes to sleep."

On his desire to fight often: "I would love to get as many fights in as possible. If I'm healthy, I don't see why I should be on the sidelines just waiting. If I'm healthy, I should be fighting, and that's what I like about the tournament: being able to fight once a month. I think all the fighters should be this way."

On Ivanov: "I see me pressuring him against the cage and then letting my hands go and ending it in the first round. I'm getting the knockout."
