You know that Damarques Johnson is our dude. You also know that he rocks one of the Top Ten Fades in MMA and is the baddest dude to wear a MiddleEasy shirt, evah. Fighting makes him smile, no really it does. It makes me smile too, but I’m not hardcore enough to get into a cage and take some elbows to the dome to prove it.
Well, what you might not know is that I spend my MMA-free weekends alternating between practicing keg-stands, playing Dance Dance Revolution Hottest Party in knee socks and building a shrine to Damarques in my living room. Yeah, I realize that’s pretty hardcore. Its ok, I’ve accepted my reality and embrace it. We all have our place in this world.
You also didn’t know is that Damarques Johnson’s next bout is going to be against Matt Riddle in none other than Johnson’s hometown of Salt Lake City, Utah at UFC on Versus 2 on August 1!
Damarques has received back to back bonuses by earning ‘Submission of the Night’ by taking out Edgar Garcia at 107 and ‘Knock-out of the Night’ at UFC 112 against Brad Blackburn. Garcia and Blackburn were both cut from the UFC after their fights with our dude. That’s gangster.
