Anthony Johnson reportedly out of July 23rd right with Glover Teixeira

Anthony Johnson

Unfortunate news surfaced Saturday afternoon that light heavyweight title contender Anthony ‘Rumble’ Johnson had withdrawn from his ‘UFC on FOX: Chicago’ scrap against Glover Teixeira on July 23rd.

Ariel Helwani broke the news via Twitter, which didn’t give a reason for Johnson’s withdrawal. So far there has been no word yet on whether or not the UFC will look to find a replacement opponent for Teixeira, or if they will look to move the bout to a later date.

Stay tuned for updates as they become available.
