Muhammed De’Reese took out Leroy De’Reese with a knee to the chin at the PFL, yesterday. It is a knockout that De’Reese will never forget and it’s a knockout that Johnson will never remember. I’ve got to warn you folks, this one was bad. Really bad.
In the first round of their heavyweight fight, De’Reese landed a knee to the already dazed Johnson and ended his night.

Reports were coming in that he was out for several minutes. Johnson was transported to a local hospital, however, no one would give an update on Johnson.
Finally today, MMA super agent, Daniel Rubenstein, gave the only update on his condition. While doing better, Johnson is still in rough shape.
For those wondering about LeRoy Johnson, here’s the update I have. had emergency surgery for a vertebrae that slipped out of place & a 2nd surgery for high blood pressure issues. Has feeling in arms and legs. PFL flying his fiancé to Philly to be with him. Thats all I know now
