Conquest short biography.

Kevoa Anthony Johnson (born March 6, 1984 in Dublin, GA) – this is an American mixed martial artist who currently fights in the UFC. His spectacular debut in the UFC was held at UFC Fight Night 10, where Johnson knocked out Chad Reiner in the first round in 13 seconds. Notice of this fight Anthony got less than a week before, and the injured Steve Bruno, who tore a muscle. He was also seen in a promotional video reality show The Ultimate Fighter 6, but for unknown reasons it was not at the show.

In the next fight at UFC 76 Anthony lost Rich Clementi, who spent the rear naked choke in the second round.

Then, at UFC Fight Night13, Johnson spectacularly knocked out Tommy Speer in the first round.

July 19, 2008 his bout against Kevin Burns live broadcast on Spike TV. The fight ended a controversial TKO at 3:35 of the third round. Johnson could not continue the fight due to the fact that he received a strong poke in the eye. Many believe that Anthony had to win this fight because of the disqualification of the opponent. During the battle Burns repeatedly got his fingers into the eyes of Anthony, although previously received a warning about this. Burns said after the fight that it was no fluke, as he had a broken arm. Despite this, Johnson was very polite with Burns in the post-match interview. Anthony appealed against this decision because the fight was stopped after he received a poke in the eye of Burns, which is considered prohibited methods. Due to the lack of remedies Johnson lost in this case.

Johnson fought again with Kevin Burns at the Ultimate Fighter 8 finale. This time the outcome of the battle was in favor of Anthony, who knocked out a kick-Head Burns in the third round. This knockout was awarded “Knockout Evening” and a bonus of $ 25,000.

At UFC Fight Night 17, Johnson won by TKO Luigi Fioravanti in the first round. Even after impressive stoppage, Anthony has apologized for his remarks, calling himself “sloppy.” Johnson said, though he was upset about that fight and he will have a lot of work, though he is young and will just get better.

Anthony was scheduled to fight Matt Brown at the TUF 9 Finale, but dropped out because of a knee injury which he received during training.

October 24, 2009 at UFC 104 Johnson will fight with the Japanese judoka Yoshiyuki Yoshida (Yoshiyuki Yoshida).
