A former rival has challenged Dustin Puryear to a fight

If Dustin Porye does indeed plan to return to action before the end of this year, he has a chance to even out one of his losses under the UFC banner.

His willingness to share the octagon with “The Diamond” was signaled by his compatriot Michael Johnson, who knocked him out as early as the second minute of their fight in September 2016.

“Let’s do it Dustin Porier! I’m all for it!”, Johnson wrote on social media, addressing Puryear.

A month ago, Dustin Porye suffered an early defeat in a challenger fight, losing by second-round knockout to Justin Gaethje, after which he moved from second to third in the UFC lightweight rankings. On the eve of the American said that he will hold his next fight this year.

Michael Johnson has only two wins in his last eight fights, and this time he plans to return to the octagon after losing by second-round knockout to Diego Ferreira in May of this year.
