UFC NEWS – Anthony Johnson Is Getting Cut Says UFC President
“Rumble Johnson did the damage to himself. To be that unprofessional to not come in on weight and that far off when you used to fight at 170, now you went to 185 pounds so you wouldn’t have trouble making weight and this is your worst weight cut ever? It’s a detriment to himself.
To be honest with you we are probably going to cut him after this event. Three strikes and you are out. This is his third time that he hasn’t made weight. He’s the co-main event in a huge fight down here in Brazil and this one was a bad one.”
UFC President Dana White went on the official UFC 142 post-fight show and announced that more than likely Anthony Johnson will be dismissed from his contract following his loss to Vitor Belfort.
If true, the dismissal is for his third violation for missing weight while under the UFC’s employment.
While Johnson is talented, can anyone blame Dana if he does indeed decide to cut him?
