Rumble Won’t Fight Teammates For Any Amount Of Money

February 6, 2014 6:24 am by BJPENN.COM News

“I want to focus on 205, but I’ll tell you this, if they try to force me to fight one of my teammates, I’ll just go up in weight. I just don’t believe in fighting your brothers. We train together day in and day out at the gym. Money is important, but family is too. No matter what the consequences are, I’ll never fight my teammates because they are my family. If Rashad (Evans) was the champ and I was the Number One contender, and they tried to make that fight, I’d just move up to heavy. I’ll tell that to anybody, any organization, any time, anywhere.”

With a new lease on life as a re-signed UFC fighter, Anthony Johnson, tells Steph Daniels over at that he will never fight one of his ‘Blackzilian’ brothers.
