Chiefly, his defensive prowess leaves plenty to be desired, and he’s in for a rough night against a sniper of the opposite stance. However, he remains lethal in the clinch as was showcased in his fight against Khalil Rountree. Johnny Walker has all the attributes required to make a meaningful run towards the title in the 205-pound division. The weight class isn’t necessarily stacked, and it’s not impossible to come back after back-to-back losses. Not to mention, he’s got a flair to his striking offense, which always motivates the UFC to promote him. Fans hope this will be the case after he heals completely.
