“I did (feel bad) because we all knew what the deal was before the fight. He was supposed to have his title shot and then he got injured, and then Jon and D.C. had their beef going on. So, they let that fight continue even though one of them got hurt. So, Alex should have had his title shot then. It should have been Alex’s shot instead of D.C. This is UFC, this is their business and they do what they have to do. It just seems like he’d been through hell and back trying to get his rematch for a title and he just didn’t get his opportunity again. I mean, I felt bad for him. So, when he was crying, that’s what was going through my head, like, damn, his dreams just got shot to hell. He’s the only guy I’ve ever felt like that for.”

In a recent interview with MMAFighting.com, Anthony “Rumble” Johnson discussed his most recent outing against Alexander Gustafsson.
