“If the UFC could put me on that card against anybody, hey, book that flight,” Johnson said .

Johnson further said that he will fight at featherweight as of now.

“We’re definitely going to do another one at 145,” Johnson said. “The weight cut went very smooth. I’m glad me and Andre put on a three-round fight. I know what my body can go through now after cutting that weight.
