January 26, 2015 9:50 am by BJPENN.COM News


On Saturday night, Anthony Johnson went into hostile territory to face Alexander Gustafsson in front of The Mauler’s native crowd in Sweden.

Johnson went in and ultimately knocked Gustafsson out in the first round after landing vicious ground and pound while Gustafsson was rocked.

He spoke to media members post-fight to discuss the finish, as well as his feelings on the bout:

“I was like, ‘I can’t believe I just beat the guy who, in my opinion, beat Jon Jones.’ So I was really in a state of shock. Nobody’s ever stopped Alexander before like that, so I was just… speechless, really.”

“I heard his corner say ‘front push kick’, and I’m a kickboxer, so I heard it and I know what I do whenever somebody does something like that, I know how to counter it. It was just perfect timing. When they said ‘front push kick’, I was like, alright, go ahead. And boom.”
