Tibau is the true litmus test for REAL LWs, Johnson has been inconsistent but fighting Tibau will really show where he stands in the division and whether or not the Lauzon victory was a sign of things to come.
IMO, Tibau clinches with him in the first half of each round, then takes Johnson down, GNPs him for the second half while working for a sub and gets a 29-28 decision after slowing down in the third. If Johnson can ride his bike and avoid the takedowns, he can take this, Gleison's just so monsterous and suffocating when he fights his style, that I have a hard time betting against him.
