Round 1: Josh Rosenthal is our referee. Johnson wastes no time going to work on Struve, backing him against the fence with a thunderous body shot and then slamming an uppercut home. Struve takes it well and clinches up, then quickly pulls guard and rolls for an armbar. Johnson can’t get his arm out, and is a little slow in tapping as Struve flips him over. Rosenthal gets in there right away to try and save him, but judging by his wincing expression, the damage may already be done. Struve gets up and runs around the cage in celebration.
