Winnable fight for Fili. I think he’s improved enough to hang with a guy like Johnson. Plus I’ve never found Michael Johnson to be that good, he isn’t that tough and lacks any diversity on the feet. All he has going for him is that speed.

Fili's fight IQ has improved greatly as of late while Johnson just hasn't evolved in any area.

He has evolved but not at the pace that Fili has. Johnson is a top level fighter but he just looks unpolished inside the cage. I don't know how to describe it. I see him go swinging with his chin up in the air sometimes. He's solid but I think he wins if this turns into a slugfest which I don't see Fili getting lulled into that.
