Michael Johnson vs. Edson Barboza full fight video highlights from UFC Fight Night 61

Michael Johnson tried to warn you.

The Ultimate Fighter (TUF) 12 runner-up told you he was faster than Edson Barboza and that he would defeat the Brazilian in the UFC Fight Night 61 co-main event, which took place last night (Sun., Feb. 22, 2015) on FOX Sports 1 from inside the Gigantinho Gymnasium in Porto Alegre, Brazil.

The proof is in the proverbial pudding.

More importantly, last night's big win marked his fourth straight and considering "The Menace" was already ranked No. 12 in the official UFC rankings (see them here), you can expect him to crack the top 10 when the list is updated later this week, as well as find himself fighting another top-10 opponent his next time out.

Or perhaps even top five.
