When Strikeforce began to import their heavyweights into the UFC, Lavar Johnson was riding a two-fight losing streak. In both bouts, he was submitted on a Challengers event, and in neither did he make it out of the second round.
Last night, however, Johnson made us forget all about his Strikeforce troubles, as he improved his UFC record to 2-0, when he dispatched of kickboxer Pat Barry in less than one round.
Although Johnson has heavy hands and a solid chin, the striking game of Barry was expected to be too much for the 34-year-old fighter out of AKA. Now that Johnson has shown fans around the world that he can compete with the best strikers that the division can offer, here is a look at some fights that we would like to see "Big" take next.
