Rage in the Cage OKC 47: Levi Queen v Rocky Johnson Rated One of Best Fights of the Weekend by MMAMania – Live on GFL.Tv
Fight fans can expect a sensational main event at the Rage in the Cage OKC 47 event, featuring two experienced middleweights battling it out.
Levi Queen has 4 straight wins in the last 11 months, finishing all four opponents. His last loss was to WSOF veteran Brian Grinnell in July 2015 by submission with one second left in the first round.
Levi has fought to a decision only once in his career, with most of his wins coming via submission. Like his opponent Rocky Johnson, Levi has had a decently long career, where he has gone 12-3 since 2009.
Johnson has been fighting since 2003 having fought an incredible 41 times, including stints in Bellator and many solid regional promotions, whilst gathering 8 belts during his 13 year career. He is a solid well rounded fighter who has proven his championship mettle over 25 minutes, and when the opportunity shows itself, he can finish an opponent via strikes or submission. Most of his losses have been via decision and he has not been finished since 2007.
The tale of the tape is in Queen’s favor, as he stands 6’ tall and is only 27 yrs old, whilst Rocky stands 5’7” and is 18 years older at 45 yrs old.
After Lee Mein won in the Hard Knocks cage at age 49 this year I would not take a veteran like Johnson lightly if I were Queen. Both fighters have good ground games. Though I like Johnson’s stamina, its hard to believe Queen’s four fight win streak will end to a fighter 18 years his senior who is also five inches shorter.
Prediction: The fight goes to the ground and Queen submits Johnson by the end of the 2nd round. At 28, Queen still has a shot at the UFC if he can keep this streak going and continues to up the competition.
