Despite two-fight skid, Lavar Johnson avoids UFC pink slip | News
With the UFC in roster-trimming mode, heavyweight Lavar Johnson likely was on shaky ground following a lackluster decision loss to Brendan Schaub this past weekend at UFC 157. |
For now, though, it appears Johnson has gotten a reprieve.
"Thank God, I still have a job with the ufc!" he tweeted overnight.
The UFC doesn't usually release a list of cuts, but for now, the Strikeforce vet remains on UFC.com's active roster.
Roster cuts have become a hot topic since 16 fighters, including former title challenger Jon Fitch, were axed on Feb. 20. The organization ultimately plans to trim its roster by 100 spots overall. |
For now, Johnson apparently won't be one of them.
Nothing in all the world is more dangerous than sincere ignorance and conscientious stupidity.
