Current fight

Round 1 – Both fighters are tentative to start, throwing almost nothing in the opening minute. They trade low kicks as Martins looks to cut off the cage and trap Johnson in a corner. More low kicks are exchanged before Martins finally throws a punches that misses with under three minutes left. Martins pounds Johnson’s leg with another kick. Johnson starts snapping his kicks high then goes back to the legs. The crowd beings to boo. They are standing right in front of each other but both fighters are reluctant to commit. Martins throws his first punching combination but doesn’t land. Johnson is throwing some side kicks to the body. Johnson goes for a flying knee but eats an overhand left that puts him on his back. Martins throws some short punches but Johnson hangs on until the horn. MMAjunkie scores the round 10-9 for Martins.

Round 2 – Martins is stalking his opponent around the octagon but Johnson is keeping on his horse. The pace of the action is starting to pick up with more strikes being thrown. Martins ducked under a Johnson head kick and lands a hook in response. Both fighters tag each other with jabs. Johnson narrowly avoids a straight right from Martins. Johnson lands a pair of low kicks, one of which lifts Martins’ foot off the ground. Johnson lands a spinning back kick to the body followed by a roundhouse kick to the midsection. Martins gives a leg kick back. Neither side can establish a solid punching range in this round and the crowd is again getting restless. The fighters smile at each other. Martins grazes Johnson with a hook and Johnson lands a hard one back, which is easily his best punch of the fight. MMAjunkie scores the round 10-9 for Johnson.

Round 3 – With the fight close there appears to be slightly more desperation. Martins is still walking forward and he eats a massive counter right hand to the side of the head. He falls face-first into the mat and Johnson jumps on him with a pair of final blows before the referee jumps in. Huge knockout for the Canadian.
