its kind of in the same vein of Palhares and heel hooks/ankle locks... everyone knows how dangerous/damaging those techniques can be but to specialize in that move is just shady (not including his proclivity to not let go of subs) its just one of those things that you would never try to do hard with your training partner but are willing to do to an opponent... its "legal" but not ethical to a lot of ppl.. a lot of the worst villains in history are the ppl that are willing to do what the average person wont and that's up to you to judge how you feel about those actions... I feel its not in the spirit of MMA so I choose not to endorse this fighter by not watching him

Its legal in MMA .However, you dont use that move in practice since it can hurt your partner. Its a result of NOT having the underhook in far enough, giving your opponent leverage
On topic, Johnson should face Bader or Shogun next. Somebody in the middle of the pack, but not too high ranked.
What about a rematch with belfort? It could be pretty interesting with Johnson not killing himself to make weight. That is if belfort would fight at 205
