Can you smell what “The Rock” is cooking?!
Johnson, a middleweight prospect who shares a name — and a nickname — with the popular actor and WWE superstar, impressed in his promotional debut. The Sanford MMA product cut through Fisher like a hot knife through butter, snapping Fisher down with an early front headlock before tying him up with a picture-perfect d’arce choke.
“It’s the baddest Duane Johnson in the world right here,” Johnson joked afterward.
“Man, I’ve been doing this for over 15 years and I know I could compete with all the top 10 in the world. And it’s everybody starts learning who Duane Johnson is. It’s my time!”
