We take a look at how Twitter reacted to Michael Johnson triumph in the main event at UFC Fight Night 94 in Hidalgo, Texas.
Johnson defeated Dustin Poirier with a stunning first-round KO to improve his MMA record to 17-10 and prevent a streak of three losses in a row.
Lightweight Johnson, who lost via a unanimous decision to Nate Diaz in his last appearance in the octagon nine months ago, made amends for that disappointment with a brutal display of punching against Poirier.

Michael Johnson with some beautiful FAST counter punching. Puts Dustin Poirier down in R1. Then stands over him and taunts. Wow.

Big win by @FollowTheMenace. Looked crisp from the start. Speed and power.

Oh dang. That was a murderous follow-up right after he dropped Poirier. But hey, man, maybe don't taunt a semi-conscious man afterward.
