UFC fighter Johnny Walker hurts shoulder while celebrating KO victory
LAS VEGAS — UFC fighter Johnny Walker says he dislocated his left shoulder while doing the Worm to celebrate his first-round knockout victory at UFC 235.
The Brazilian light heavyweight followed up his latest highlight-reel victory with an injury that left him embarrassed but smiling Saturday night.
Walker (17-3) earned his third stoppage victory in four months with a spectacular flying knee, stopping Misha Cirkunov just 36 seconds into their bout.
The entertaining fighter then purposely dropped face-first onto the canvas to begin his breakdancing move. Walker quickly stopped and rolled over in pain when he realized he had hurt his shoulder.
