” For me personally, it didn’t matter what weight class I fought at. I’d fight at 205 (pounds) if they asked me to. But, fighting at 185 — people have been asking me for a long time when I was gonna move up to 185. I had an opportunity to fight Vitor Belfort, so I’m gonna step up to the challenge and see what I can do. I feel great already. I’m 215 to 220, right now. I feel amazing. My speed is still there. Of course I’m stronger. So, I know, fighting at 185, I’m gonna be just as fast. In my opinion, I’ll be just as strong… I honestly think it won’t go all three rounds. Somebody’s gonna get hurt. I don’t know who it’ll be. I don’t plan on getting hurt at all. Somebody’s gonna get hurt. Somebody’s gonna get carried out on a stretcher or something. It’s gonna be a battle. That’s what I’m looking for. That’s what I’m preparing for. I hope he is too. I plan on doing whatever it takes to beat Vitor. I mean, I don’t know if I’m gonna stand or if I’m gonna take it to the ground. I’m gonna win. That’s all I know. “
Last night on the live edition of HDNet’s Inside MMA, UFC 142 co-main event fighter, Anthony “Rumble” Johnson talked about his upcoming fight with Vitor Belfort.
This is a very interesting fight, both fighters have heavy hands, with the technical edge probably going to Belfort, but “Rumble” is a savage and he is making his middleweight debut against one of the top talents in the sport.
