MMA Interview: Ultimate Fighter 12 Finalist Michael 'The Menace' Johnson

Jason Schielke@jasonschielkeCorrespondent IDecember 21, 2010

On this Wednesday's edition of Sprawl N Brawl Radio, we will be joined live TUF 12 finalist Michael Johnson.

Johnson, who is fighting out of Springfield Fight Club in Springfield, MO, was the first pick of Team GSP, and for good reason.  During his time on the show, Johnson displayed incredible wrestling skills and proved he has some power in his hands as he defeated Nam Phan, Alex "Bruce Leroy" Caceres, Aaron Wilkinson, and Pablo Garza en route to a showdown in the finals against Jonathan Brookins.

During their battle in The Ultimate Fighter finale, Brookins' iron chin proved too much for Johnson however.  "The Menace" hit him with everything but the kitchen sink and had Brookins on shaky legs, but Jonathan Brookins was able to absorb the punishment and went on to win the six-figure contract by unanimous decision.

So after the reality show, what lies ahead for Johnson inside and outside the UFC?  What are his thoughts on his fight against Brookins?  What was it like leaving the comfort of home to live in a house with 16 testosterone filled guys?  What was it like to train with one of the all time greats in the sport Georges St. Pierre?  How shocked was he to see Mike Tyson in the locker room?

Find out all this and more tomorrow at 7:00 CST on Sprawl N Brawl Radio. If you have any questions while he's on the air, feel free to call us at (347) 327-9653.  Click the link or visit to listen live.
