UFC Fight Night 224 video: Diego Ferreira knocks Michael Johnson out cold

Diego Ferreira showed off serious power against Michael Johnson.

Ferreira (18-5 MMA, 9-5 UFC) knocked out Johnson (21-19 MMA, 13-15 UFC) with a massive overhand right in their lightweight bout at UFC Fight Night 224 at the UFC Apex in Las Vegas.

Johnson looked fast and sharp on the feet in Round 1, where Ferreira wasn’t able to get him down. Following the instructions of his head coach Sayif Saud, Ferreira let his hands go in Round 2 until he landed a home run which shut the lights off Johnson at the 1:50 mark (via Twitter):

Ferreira returned from a 17-month layoff to snap a three-fight losing skid. The Fortis MMA fighter notched his first win since January 2020.
