UFC 235 Video: Johnny Walker blasts Misha Cirkunov, dislocates shoulder while celebrating

Johnny Walker is a danger to all UFC light heavyweights, including himself.

The UFC light heavyweight division is currently ruled by Jon Jones, but it’s Johnny Walker who’s the hottest name at 205 lbs with his destructive knockout power.

Just a month removed from a 15-second TKO of Justin Ledet, Walker returned to action with a short notice fight against Misha Cirkunov at UFC 235 in Las Vegas, and he only needed 36 seconds to get this win. A flying knee put Cirkunov down, and punches prompted the fight to be waved off. He’s 3-0 inside the Octagon and rising up the ranks. It seems the only thing stopping Walker is himself, because he literally suffered an injury while doing “The Worm.”

Watch the video below, along with play-by-play of the bout from Tim Burke:

Round 1 - Inside leg kick from Cirkunov. Jump knee from Walker connects right on the chin and Cirkunov is down! Few punches and he’s out! JOHNNY WALKER HAS DONE IT AGAIN!

Johnny Walker defeated Misha Cirkunov via KO (flying knee and punches), :36 of round 1

Walker said he dislocated his left shoulder, and added in his post-fight interview, “If I survive myself I can survive anyone.”
