10 Bantamweight Prospects the UFC Should Sign in 2020


“No Way / Los Lobos” Jose Johnson

24 | 6’0″ | Copperas Cove, Texas | 11-5 | 8 Finishes | 7 KO/TKOs, 1 Submission (RNC) | Combined Opponents’ Record: 69-66-1 | Best Win – Rafael Costa (11-2)

Jose Johnson, being only 24, has an amazing amount of experience. Not only is he 11-5 as a pro but he has an extensive amateur career going 68-12. At a point in his pro career, Jose was 5-4 but since late 2018 he’s looked much improved. He’s the current Warrior Xtreme Cagefighting bantamweight champ and recently fought for the top UFC feeder league LFA.

Johnson has looked stellar as of late. He is now on a five-fight win streak, all finishes in the first round. He will struggle with takedown defense but is good off his back with solid jiu-jitsu. On the feet is where he excels and is a very dangerous fighter. Johnson is good at range with long strikes and an effective teep kick. He’s lethal in the clinch with excellent Muay Thai bringing in deadly elbows and knees. Such an athletic guy and only 24, you have to like where he is heading.
