The whole "caught early" excuse is annoying. Guess who is the one that caught him? Johnson! It's not like it was a freak accident, Johnson meant to catch him and because of his abilities and power, he did. If Lauzon couldn't recover within 15 minutes, that's his own fault and it's a legit win for Johnson. I like Lauzon, don't get me wrong. He's a fun fighter and is a finisher, but people discrediting a solid win because of that excuse is kind of ridiculous. No disrespect intended to Proud either, it's just a weird excuse. You might as well say no one ever loses just because they were the lesser fighter that night.
Give credit when credit is due. Good win for Johnson. It's what I expected to happen. it's just too bad he's inconsistent. When he brings it all together, he's a beast in the octagon.
