Johnson (21-2-1) never was in danger in his fight, showing complete control of Cariaso (17-6) with his speed and wrestling. Johnson nearly finished the fight by TKO in the first, but Cariaso survived. In the second, Johnson continued to put on the pressure and got his opponent to the ground, securing a kimura, which forced a tap. According to oddsmakers at Bovada.lv, Johnson was the overwhelming favorite to win, as he had odds of -1400 to prevail, which means a wager of $1400 on him will pay out an additional $100.
