Round 1: See if the TKO streak can continue here. So far, three main card fights, three TKOs. This one has the makings to follow suit. Referee is Dan Miragliotta. They touch gloves. Johnson right away moving his hands, throwing. Teixeira throws two punches and a major counter lands! Teixeira drops straight back, stiff as a board. Hammerfist follow up. He is out! Fight is over. Johnson just ethered him, a right uppercut right on the chin. Just starched him. Rumble is a bad man.
