Fight scrapped
July 17, 2021
Johns announced via his personal Instagram account that his fight Saturday against Anderson dos Santos in Las Vegas has been cancelled due to a positive COVID-19 test in dos Santos' camp.
Johns was seeking his second straight victory after knocking out Kevin Natividad in his last trip to the Octagon in October, but COVID-19-related concerns will force him to wait a bit before fighting again. It's unclear if the UFC has plans to reschedule the Johns-dos Santos bout for a later date.
Booked for July 17
April 19, 2021
John is set to take on Anderson dos Santos at UFC Fight Night on July 17, reports.
The bantamweight will go for his second straight win in this newly booked matchup. Johns most recently defeated Kevin Natividad via KO (punch) at UFC Fight Night on Oct. 31, 2020 while dos Santos will also be going for his second consecutive UFC victory.
Huge KO win in Vegas
October 31, 2020
Johns defeated Kevin Natividad via KO (punch) at 2:51 of Round 3 at UFC Fight Night on Saturday in Las Vegas.
It was an excellent rebound effort from Johns on the heels of his knockout defeat -- his first loss as a pro -- to Mario Bautista this past February. Johns is a big (5-foot-7), physical fighter for the bantamweight division. He failed on all seven of his takedown attempts Saturday but also managed to land 45 percent (47 of 104) of his significant strikes. The finish came when Johns cracked Natividad on the jaw with a perfectly placed uppercut that knocked his opponent out cold. Some might say an illegal glove grab may have helped clear the way for the knockout blow, but it will go down as a finish nonetheless. Johns has now alternated wins and losses in his first three UFC bouts. He'll take home a $50,000 Performance of the Night bonus for his efforts -- his first bonus with the company.
Booked for Oct. 31 fight
September 28, 2020
Johns will fight Kevin Natividad in a bantamweight matchup at the UFC event Oct. 31 in Las Vegas, reports.
Johns most recently fought at UFC 247 when he lost to Mario Bautista via TKO, falling to 1-1 in the UFC and 10-1-0 overall. He'll take on a debuting opponent in Natividad who has racked up five consecutive victories -- including three stoppages -- under the banner of Legacy Fighting Alliance. Johns will enter an inch taller, but Natividad -- a former featherweight -- will have a two-inch reach advantage.
Suffers first pro loss
February 8, 2020
Johns lost to Mario Bautista via TKO (strikes) at 1:41 of Round 2 at UFC 247 on Saturday in Houston.
It's the first loss in Johns' professional career. He looked reasonably solid in a first round in which neither man did much of anything. His undoing came early in Round 2 when Bautista managed to connect with a flying knee. Referee Dan Miragliotta gave Johns plenty of time to recover, but it clearly wasn't happening. The upside of Johns is fairly limited despite his previous undefeated record. His greatest attribute is the fact youth is still on his side given the fact he won't turn 26 years of age until late March.
