Twenty-six-year-old Californian Lightweight Dashon “Fly Boy” Johnson (9-0) has been signed by the UFC to take on fellow newcomer Jake Matthews (4-0) on June 28th at UFC Fight Night 43 in Aukland, New Zealand.

Both guys come in with perfect records, but once I started looking at just who Johnson had fought, and what their records were, I was quite surprised at what I found.

How is this not fighter bashing? Where were the articles on Krylovs "padded record"

Many, many fighters start out their career like this. Remember Jason Reinhardt? 20-0 in non ufc fights. 0-3 and dominated in every ufc fight. Some guys are ok with padding their records.

This is different from the usual padded records, though. He fights out of Team Xplode MMA and has only fought Xplode Fight Series so when they keep giving him guys with those records it does seem fishy. Especially when you point out that his last fight was a guy he had beaten a year earlier and was now 0-10 heading into the rematch.

0-11? I don't think I've ever seen that before

Then again, I don't really pay attention to people's records outside the UFC/Bellator/WSOF/ETC

It seems like I'm seeing these suspect undefeated records a lot more than I used to. Smells like Boxing I hope this doesn't become more even more prevalent.

It's all good though. Padded means sheltered and now he is not sheltered anymore. He's in with the big boys now. He'll get his ass whooped or he won't. I think he just might though.
