In defeating Ryan Martinez via TKO in March, not only did Johnson end his losing streak, but he also extended his career, which before the fight was in jeopardy.
I had a few losses before that, so to get that W, I really needed that or (I was going to) hang it up, said Johnson. It got to the point to where if I m not beating these guys and I can t be the best then I feel I should not be fighting.
It didn t go as planned, said Johnson. I didn t know (Martinez) was going to be that good of a wrestler, to hold me down like that. He s got good ground and pound, so I knew I had to be out from under him.

I ve got to stay away from (Ivanov s) clinch. He s got good Sambo, so I think as long as I can stay away from him clinching me, I think it s the same thing (as all my other fights): I ll pressure him, put him up against the cage, and put him to sleep.
I ve been doing this for a little over ten years now and my body s been through some things, so I think it s time for another chapter in life, he said. I m happy with my career, and I m going to give it one last shot.
