Following his knock out loss at UFC Philadelphia, Michael Johnson took to social media to congratulate Josh Emmett and address his fans.

Johnson looked good throughout the fight, right up until the point when Emmett connected with a monstrous right hand late in the third round.

All things considered, “The Menace” is in good spirits following the setback. He took to Instagram following his fight to tip his hat to Emmett and address his fans.

“Great fight and hats off to [Josh Emmett]. I’ve slipped and fell in the game several times, and I’m always back on feet. See ya guys soon. “

As Johnson alluded to, he has had his fair share of setbacks in the UFC. This, however, was Johnson’s chance to finally crack the featherweight rankings as Emmett was ranked No. 10.

The loss will snap his two-fight winning streak. Johnson has gone a subpar 3-4 since losing to Nate Diaz at UFC on FOX 17 back in December of 2015.
