Michael Johnson is chomping at the bit to get back inside the Octagon.
“The Menace” hasn’t been seen since his submission loss to Khabib Nurmagomedov back in Nov. 2016 in New York City. He’ll take on Justin Gaethje inside the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas this Friday night (July 7) for The Ultimate Fighter 25 Finale.
