However, late in the fight Maxwell, who has bare knuckle fighting and MMA experience, landed a monster punch to the head of the former Bengals receiver.

You can watch the awesome strike below.

The most impressive part of this situation is the fact that Johnson actually managed to quickly get up off of the ground.

I think it’s safe to say that most people wouldn’t have popped up like that. It would have been lights out.

No winner was declared Sunday night, but Johnson managed to land 31% of his punches and 40% of his jabs, which bested Maxwell in both categories, according to ESPN.

Outside of getting knocked down, he looked surprisingly solid in the ring.

Props Johnson for giving the fans a show and looking very solid while doing it. Still, that was a monster punch he ate.
