Michael Johnson Issues Challenge To Josh Thomson

michael johnson

Michael Johnson just wants to fight.

The alum of The Ultimate Fighter continues to call out everybody and anybody. His recent post on Twitter has him asking Josh Thomson for a fight.

“Hey (Thomson) u wanting to fight in San Jose?” Johnson said. “I’ll fly that way and we can scrap.”

Thomson’s Twitter account posted a message over the weekend directed towards Nick Diaz. It included quite a bit of profanity and ended with Thomson asking Diaz for a fight. Last year, the former Strikeforce champion defeated Nate Diaz.

Since the message went up, Thomson has released a statement saying he had his phone stolen and did not make the posts. Nate Diaz responded by calling him a liar.

Johnson (15-8) earned his third straight victory this past March, scoring a decision over Melvin Guillard. He topped Gleison Tibau and Joe Lauzon last year after a loss to Reza Madadi.
