Comeback kid: Plymouth’s Ed Johnson fights to keep his MMA dreams alive

January 25, 2012

PLYMOUTH — Ed Johnson found Mixed Martial Arts as a way to cope with the pain of his father’s loss.
The sport that started as an outlet quickly became a passion, but when he awoke one morning to discover two herniated lumbar discs 10 months ago, he thought he might have to give up that passion forever.
Fortunately for Johnson, that’s not the case.
After a tough and uncertain rehabilitation, the 20-year-old Plymouth High School graduate will make his return to the cage April 7 in a 155-pound bout at the Century Center.

Cox Gymnasium at LaVille.
