In his first Octagon appearance in nearly two years, Canadian veteran Kajan Johnson made the most of his return earlier tonight (Sat., Sept. 9, 2017) at UFC 215 from inside Rogers Place in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada. The 33-year-old lightweight may have taken a little longer than expected to get going against battled-tested Brazilian Adriano Martins, but Johnson brought the noise in Round 3. During an exchange along the cage Johnson landed a crisp counter right on the exit. Martins dropped to the canvas like a sack of potatoes and Johnson finished his efforts up with one brutal insurance shot to claim the late knockout stoppage.

With this win, Johnson extends his current win streak to three and tastes his first Octagon victory since late September of 2015. The former Ultimate Fighter standout is a seasoned veteran capable of performing like he did tonight, so it’s going to be exciting to see where “Ragin’” goes from here (assuming he can stay healthy).
