UFC officials have given Lavar Johnson another chance, as the heavyweight posted on Twitter late Thursday night that he will not be cut.
Johnson was handed his second straight loss by Brendan Schaub last month at UFC 157: Rousey vs. Carmouche.
Thank God, I still have a job with the ufc!

Johnson was unable to avoid numerous takedowns by Schaub, leaving much to be desired in the fight. However, it appears the UFC will provide him another opportunity to get into the win column, likely later this year.
