Leading up to UFC 191, light heavyweight Anthony Johnson was in the headlines a few times for not-so-great things.
First it was his Facebook rant/yoga mat incident. Apparently at his gym he got into with a women doing yoga and after arguing he picked up her mat and threw it across the street. Then he decided to go on Facebook and write all about it, slamming the women and comparing her to a bag of dog food.
Of course, with his past domestic violence issues, the story blew up. The UFC investigated and decided not to punish him for anything.
Then, right at the eve of his fight on Saturday, reports came out about animal abuse accusations. Johnson denied all those and still fought at UFC 191. After his win, he had something to say to the media, who reported on the incidents.
Here’s what he said at the post fight press conference:
“Like I said before, you guys are going to write what you want want to write. A lot of you guys write a lot of bullsh-t. But that’s what you do. That’s what you have to do to get paid, and I’m fine with that.
“But if you’re going to write something bad, also write something good.”
