Johnson will actually be a good test for Ferguson. Johnson has been improving his stand up, and his take down defense is looking solid. He managed to stuff former three time All American wrestler Shane Roller's take downs very well up until the third round of their fight and still managed to get back to his feet winning a decision. Ferguson will probably have to keep this fight standing which I'm sure he will oblige too.
One problem that I think may be a factor in this fight for Johnson is his conditioning. He needs to keep working on that because if this fight goes all three rounds, I think that sort of favors Ferguson. This one will probably go the distance. I'm leaning toward Ferguson, but I wouldn't be surprised if Johnson got the win.
Also, good to see Dodson fighting again. I don't know much about Elliot other than his win over Pulver. That's not as impressive as it used to be, so that doesn't tell us much about him. Dodson looked impressive on the ultimate fighter and in the finals when he got a quick win over a decent prospect, Dillashaw. It's kind of hard to give an opinion on this fight when not knowing much about his opponent, but I don't see the UFC giving him a hard fight after just winning the ultimate fighter tournament. They want to build up this prospect who could be very marketable. He had a funny personality on the show and was sort of controversial with his antics. I didn't mind them, but others did.
