A featherweight bout featuring Michael Johnson taking on Artem Lobov co-headlined last night’s UFC Fight Night 138 event in Moncton, Canada.

“The Menace” served as a short-notice replacement for the fight, this after Lobov’s originally scheduled opponent Zubaira Tukhugov was pulled from the fight card due to his involvement in UFC 229‘s now infamous post-fight brawl.

Last night’s UFC Moncton co-main attraction actually took place at a catchweight, this after Michael Johnson narrowly missed the featherweight limit of 146-pounds.

Johnson was able to utilize his quick jab throughout his fight with Artem Lobov last night, landing numerous crisp punches on the head of “The Russian Hammer“.

Despite appearing to be at a speed disadvantage in the standup department, Artem Lobov continuously pressed the action during last night’s co-main event, landing a number of solid strikes in the process.

After fifteen minutes of competitive action, Michael Johnson was awarded a unanimous decision victory over Artem Lobov by the judges in attendance.

The victory marked Johnson’s second in a row, as he had previously defeated Andre Fili in August.

Meanwhile, following his latest loss to “The Menace”, Artem Lobov has now dropped five of his past seven fights overall.

The Russian Hammer‘s” most recent victory came way back at UFC Fight Night 99 in Ireland, when he defeated Teruto Ishihara via unanimous decision.
