    Default Anthony Johnson

    Has there been a bigger waste of talent recently?

    I mean the obvious thing is to say he has no discipline as far as keeping his weight down, but I think there's more to it. He just shits the bed when it comes to the big moment.

    Joe Rogan can talk about how he injured Belfort's eye but I thought it was a shitty performance overall. He was totally out of control, ridiculous strike attempts and he just never looked comfortable. Too big of a moment IMO.

    And then there's the fact that he moves up a weight class and comes in 12 pounds overweight.

    I pick the wrong fighters to root for.

    Johnson has said in the past how he'd love to get his hands on Michael Vick and beat the shit out of him for fighting dogs to the death so he's still a good guy in my book

    I didn't hear the fight but I read about the result.

    Johnson is a solid contender, but he's never gonna be champ. The same can be said for a lot of guys in the UFC.

    Is/was Johnson one of your favorites Oumafan ?

    He is very unprofessional I believe he has missed weight 3 times and there is serious talk about the three strike rule and Dana has said before the fight he will probably be cut after the fight. I believe that is just and I also believe he can work his way back tithe UFC. Ivemever been a fan of his the weight problems and Hardy fight didn't help!

    I was rooting for Vitor he is a legend in the sport and a constant showman. Great finish cannot wait to see him back in the octagon.

    Maybe we are going to see a Johnson vs Marquardt fight in the future. I saw that Nate and Bamma parted ways. Not sure if he is still trying to fight at WW or not and who knows if Johson can make 185 or not. Either way it could be a winner gets back in the UFC fight.
