Title: Johnny Walker Aims for Title Shot in 2024, Prepares for Rematch in UFC Vegas 84
Subheading: Walker hopes to dominate the light heavyweight division and one day conquer the heavyweight division as well.
In an exclusive interview with Courier Standard Enterprise, rising MMA star Johnny Walker revealed his ambitious goals for the next few years. The 29-year-old fighter is determined to secure a title shot in the light heavyweight division by the year 2024. To achieve this, he plans on stringing together a series of wins against top fighters in the division.
Walker’s ultimate dream is to become a “great champion” and clinch the 205-pound belt. Not content with just one championship, he harbors aspirations of eventually moving up to the heavyweight division and capturing yet another title. The Brazilian expresses confidence in his size and power, believing that it will suit him well in the heavyweight category.
The road to glory begins this weekend as Walker is set to face off against Magomed Ankalaev in the main event of UFC Vegas 84. This highly anticipated matchup is a rematch of their previous fight, which ended in a controversial “No Contest” decision due to an illegal knee strike from Ankalaev.

The upcoming bout promises to be a challenging encounter for both athletes, with neither willing to back down. MMA fans are eagerly awaiting the match, eager to witness the clash between Walker’s explosive fighting style and Ankalaev’s calculated approach.
