Originally OSP was slated to take on Misha Cirknov at UFC 235 in Las Vegas. After having to back out of the fight due to injury, Johnny Walker steps in the take on Cirknov.
Walker is a rising up and coming star in the UFC’s light heavyweight division. While Cirknov on the other hand is possibly in dire need of win the weekend. Walker just fought his second UFC event on February 2nd of this year. He has impressive UFC wins over Justin Ledet, and Khalil Roundtree.
Cirvnov has `14 wins as a pro, 12 of those 14 wins were finishes. It will be interesting to see if Misha would be able to test Walker’s ground game. Nobody to this point has been able to successfully take Johnny Walker down. Cirknov will be looking for the take down immediately as soon as the opening whistle is.
UFC 235 will take place on March second of this year. Taking place in the T-Mobile arena in Las Vegas Nevada. It will be headlined by Jon Jones defending his light heavyweight title against Anthony Smith. It will also feature Tyron Woodley defending his welterweight title against Kamaru Usman.
