Johnson took to his Instagram account to congratulate Emmett and he assured fans that he will be back:
“Great fight and hats off to [Josh Emmett]. I’ve slipped and fell in the game several times, and I’m always back on feet. See ya guys soon. “
With the loss to Emmett, Johnson’s two-fight win streak has been snapped. He was able to pick up wins over Andre Fili and Artem Lobov after dropping three in a row. UFC Philadelphia was an opportunity for Johnson to get on the UFC featherweight rankings as Emmett is the 10th ranked 145-pounder, but it wasn’t meant to be.
