Anthony Rumble Johnson Wins PNG

In a bit of unfortunate news, top UFC light-heavyweight contender, Anthony “Rumble” Johnson has a past that’s coming back to haunt him.

According to a report coming from Bloodyelbow.com’s Brent Brookhouse, Rumble’s ex and mother of two of his children, claims he knocked out her teeth, picked her up, slammed her, drug her up some stairs by her head, and more.

Here’s a snip from a recent police report: (via Bloodyelbow)

On 09/05/14 I met with the complainant, *redacted*, at the DBPD in reference to a domestic dispute. *Redacted* advised that she is frightened by the father of their children, Anthony Johnson.

*Redacted* stated that two years ago Johnson hit her in the face and knocked out two of her teeth. Since that incident she has had several other verbal altercations with Johnson. *redacted* has only reported one of the incidents to the police.

Most recently, Johnson went to *redacted*’s house and tok their dog on 08/24/14. *Redacted* also advised that she keeps receiving calls and text messages from an unknown male subject threatening her. *Redacted* stated that it’s not Johnson but thinks it’s his friends.

I advised *redacted* to go to the Courthouse and obtain a no contact order against Johnson.

I provided *redacted* with a domestic violence brochure.

 

In the report a statement from Johnson’s rep said he denies all allegations.

UPDATE: The UFC has suspended Johnson indefinitely. We have their statement HERE!
