Johnny Walker Knows He Could Be A Decent Rival To The Champ Jon Jones
Johnny Walker is the former UCMMA and EBD champ, and a rising star of UFC Light Heavyweight division.
Johnny’s UFC score is 3-0, with three superb first-round stoppages in a row. In his debut, Walker elbowed Khalil Rountree Jr to sleep after 117 seconds at UFC Fight Night 140, on November 17, 2018. Then he needed only 15 seconds to demolish Justin Ledet at UFC on ESPN+ 2, on February 2, 2019.
But Johnny Walker shocked the world when he finished dangerous Russian Misha Cirkunov via fantastic flying knee at UFC 235 preliminary card last Saturday. The fight was over after only 36 seconds!
The current champ Jon Jones headlined the same event where he dominated Anthony “Lionheart” Smith to earn a unanimous decision win.

“I hope [to] fight against him… Not soon, I need more fights,” Walker SAID. “There are guys who deserve the fight more than me. But I need to beat three, four more guys. This will give me more experience and I’ll be ready for Jon Jones.
Confident Johnny Walker has no fear of Jon Jones and believes he could give the current UFC 205-pound champ a hard time.
“I think when [people] fight against Jon Jones, people [are] a little bit scared or respect him too much, you know? And when I fight against him, he’s a nice guy but when closes the door in the Octagon, no respect, no fear, no nothing. Only I go and fight.”
“My friend, you know I can give you a proper fight,” Walker said. “I’m not scared, we will have a dance together.”
