Jordan Johnson has trained at several places including the MMA Lab and Alliance MMA, and has been a training partner of Vitor Belfort, but has not settled at Power MMA and Fitness with Ryan Bader, Aaron Simpson and C.B. Dolloway.  As you can tell, Johnson has intentionally surrounded himself with good training partners.  Johnson has a great wrestling base.  He is a former division 1 wrestler out of the University of Iowa.  Johnson throws powerful punches.  I believe he has a tendency to get a little wild and needs to work on his accuracy, but his game is not necessarily to pick someone apart on the outside, it is more about pressure.  He swings wildly at times, but he can land with power.  I believe when he gets more comfortable with his striking he will be a real force in the division.  His win over Shaun Asher was an impressive win and a solid win for his resume.  He is currently fighting for RFA, and I do not believe that it will take long for UFC or Bellator to come calling.  Given his solid wrestling pedigree, age, current skills and training partners…I believe Johnson can be a real solid addition to any light heavyweight roster.
