At UFC Fight Night: Blachowicz vs. Rakic, UFC lightweight Michael Johnson broke his four-fight skateboard in the promotion and scored an impressive knockout victory over Alan Patrick in the prelims.
While the ending deserves a standout, ‘The Menace’ was out when it came to the ‘Performance of the Night’ reward. Johnson took to Twitter and reacted about not receiving the bounty, lightly claiming he had been “robbed” again.
Johnson hasn’t won a ‘Performance of the Night’ or ‘Fight of the Night’ award in nearly five years. The last time ‘The Menace’ won a bounty was in July 2017 when he pitted Justin Gaethje in a fight. The match was awarded the title of ‘Fight of the Night’ and became an instant classic for MMA fans around the world.
Ryan Spann and Manuel Torres selected as ‘Performance of the Night’ award winners at UFC Fight Night: Blachowicz vs. Rakic.
Amanda Ribas and Katlyn Chookagian are considered the ‘Fight of the Night’ for the event.

At UFC Vegas 54, Michael Johnson scored his first UFC knockout goal in nearly six years. Before that, Johnson took down Dustin Poirier for the last time in September 2016.
‘The Menace’ did a quick take on ‘The Diamond’ that night and finished him off in the opening minute of the first inning. Johnson won the ‘Performance of the Night’ award for that end.
Poirier recently researched Michael Chandler, questioning the durability of ‘Iron’s chin.
In response, Chandler mentioned Poirier’s loss to Johnson in 2016 and congratulated ‘The Menace’ on his knockout win at UFC Vegas 54.
