Walker is a rising star in the UFC.
Saturday was an exciting day for UFC fans as UFC 235 saw Jon Jones defend his title against Anthony Smith. Jones dominated the fight from start to finish and is already thinking about his next challenger. One of those potential future challengers is Brazilian light heavyweight fighter Johnny Walker, who fought in the undercard on Saturday. He defeated Misha Cirkunov in just 36 seconds after a devastating knee to the face. Walker was one of the people on Jones' list of people he wants to fight next and as the young fighter told TMZ Sports, he is up to the challenge.
"It feels so exciting. I feel proud about myself. People start to know me now, this is my dream come true," Walker explained. "I need to beat [3 or 4 more guys] and this will give me more experience and I'll be ready for Jon Jones."
After winning his big fight Saturday, Walker did the worm in the Octagon and ended up dislocating his shoulder in the process. It was a pretty embarrassing injury which Walker says is healing quite well although he is still in some pain.
