Johnny Walker 2020 Contender Year

Johnny Walker future star of the UFC but will he be the Light Heavyweight Champion? Johnny Walker lost to Nikita Krylov and Corey Anderson but pre Krylov fight switched camps to Tristar Gym, Coaching by the #1 or #2 MMA Coach Firas Zahabi.

Johnny Walker with being coached by Firas Zahabi without a doubt will help Walker maximize his potential. Hopefully will see a new and improved Johnny Walker.

I have been thinking and reflecting since Saturday night. I learnt a lot. I feel proud that I went three rounds against a great fighter. But it revealed the holes in my game. For this, I’m thankful because its shown me what I need to work on. So back to the drawing board. My dream is still the same. I’m still focused. I didn’t win, but I learned. #ufc #illbeback #stronger #and #improved #vou #voltar #melhor #e #mais #forte #obrigado #Deus #evoluçao

Losses in the cage and in life can make or break Johnny Walker. In his return against Ryan Spann or Aleksandr Rakic. Love to see Walker return to the octagon this summer, Watching the improvements in his game.

“Johnny is a very unique striker,” said Zahabi, the Tristar coach. “Very creative, very explosive. He’s the hardest-hitting guy I’ve ever trained. … I’ve been training the who’s who of UFC for a long time. I’ve had the privilege of working with these great athletes. And I’m sorry, this guy is the hardest-hitting human being I’ve ever seen. It’s scary.”

“Firas has a lot to teach me; I have a lot to learn and evolve with him,” Walker said. “I’ll get back there, train and come back much stronger.
