    blackzilla

  2. jboy says:

    I think its goin to be boring watching the fight because um pretty sure Johnson is not going to stand with vitor and well see 3 rounds of him pushing vitor against the cage trying for a takedown

    • Thatshicraz says:

      well dont watch it then.. if he has to do that to win then his ganna do it. complain somewhere else

      • Chris says:

        He can voice his opinion if he likes.

        • Mike says:

          Thing is people won’t watch it. Those types of fighters do nothing for the sport. Fight to finish not to win. #PrideFighting

        • berto says:

          Hopefully this will be a great slugfest till someone gets KTFO.. Got to go for Vitor thou so hopefully he’s the one that will do it.

        • Kevin says:

          Buddy you’ve never fought a day in your life you would do what you have to do to win if you were smart

        • TRE says:

          Did he just say they dont do shit for the sport lmao this guy obviously dont kno shit about mma, go watch k1 or somthin this is mixed martial arts the best damn sport in the world, and if a guy gets dumped 2 his ass and is 2 fuckin stupid 2 kno how 2 get up then he deserves 2 get pounded on from the ground and Johnson isnt just a wrestler, he is a legit kick boxer with highlight real knock outs and has nasty ko power

  3. As long as his dumbass makes weight..Vitor FTW!

  4. Vitor will KO him. Everytime this guy talks it makes you want to facepalm. Vitor will send him back to WW with a 1st rd KO.

  5. DOC SANTOS says:

    Johnson will do just fine in the MW Division. But I do believe that Vitor’s experience will play a major factor.

  6. BJPennrules says:

    Vitor will Kill this guy…dont do it Rumble..you might end up in the hospital..

  7. Damn says:

    He looks jacked! Vitor likes em jacked. Much bigger, much easier for him to hit.

  8. caveman says:

    Rumble is really hyping the fight, hes probably gonna go out and wrestle him for 15 mins just like he did to hardy.

  9. MALEEKDASNEEK says:

    I GOT VITOR BY TKO…I THINK VITOR IS JUS A BETTER TECHNICAL STRIKER

  10. Kyle says:

    Win or lose that dude is NEVER going back to welterweight. How he EVER fought there I never understood. He walks around at like 225.

    • Kimura says:

      I wish they had a rule like max of 20#’s over weight class on fight day. Someone weighing 225 and fighting at 170 seems pretty ridiculous to me and has to be unhealthy. What do I know though!

      • t says:

        well look at rampage he walks around at 245 then makes cut to 205 so its a good thing

        • Ninja Oreo Dollop says:

          That’s all hamburgers at 245.

        • TheCrippler says:

          Yeah cut Rampages belly off in his off time, and he’d be pretty close to weight. Anderson does close to the same, but he has the body to do it. Johnson is pure muscle.

      • Parko says:

        do you know anything about what you were writing?

        so you really think rumble gains 55 pounds in one night?

        rumble is definitely not over 195 pounds on fight night.

        if someone makes wheight it doesn’t matter if they’re were 300 pounds the week before. If you can make weight you BELONG in this weight class.

  11. Chupacabra says:

    Vitor hands down has the fastest hands in the MW division other than Anderson. Personally I think if Rumble manages to utilize his wrestling than I can see him grinding out a decision maybe even a tko(courtesy to the power he possesses, any clean shot from Rumble could be lights out). But even then he’s introuble due to Vitor’s grappling credentials(black belt bjj). With only 3 losses and 2 of those by submission, one has to wonder how good his ground game really is(Dan Hardy is no exception he sucks on the ground).

    As far as them striking I don’t see him hanging with Vitor. The longer it stays on the feet the worse the situation becomes for Anthony. Unless he lands one of those brutal headkicks(that you can see coming from a mile away) than I’m pretty sure Vitor will have no problem schooling Rumble with a little boxing 101.

  12. johnyfz450 says:

    thats a big nig can you say silverback gorilla

  13. i hate leg humpers says:

    i would love to see vitor’s striking on display for this one, but unfortunately blackzilla is going to dry hump him all night long ;-(

  14. JC says:

    fuck vitor, i hope rumble knocks his lights out. Then we dont have to hear Vitor bitch about another crack at silva that he doesnt deserve.

  15. TRE says:

    THESE PPL OUT THEY DAMN MIND IF THEY THINK VITOR BACK OF THE HEAD BELFORT IS GON WIN THIS ONE, THIS AINT AKIYAMA, THIS ANTHONY RUMBLE JOHNSON, A GUY WHO HAS NEVER BEEN KO’d AND IF IM NOT MISTAKEN VITOR JUST GOT HIS ASS KNOCKED OUT BY SILVA, SO I DONT THINK VITORS PREDICTABLE BARRAGE OF PUNCHES IS GOIN 2 DO ANY THING, IF HE COMES AT RUMBLE LIKE THAT HE IS GETTING DUMPED 2 HIS ASS AND POUNDED ON, AND IF HE TRYES 2 STAND BACK AND TRADE SHOTS ON THE OUTSIDE THEN HE IS DEFF GON GET KNOCKED OUT, YALL FORGETTING RUMBLE HAD ALOT OF POWER AND SPEED AT 170 AND NOW HE IS GOING UP, SO HIS BODY WONT B AS DEPLETED AND HE WILL B HITTING HARDER, NOW AFTER SAYING ALL OF THAT, U NEVER KNO WHAT IS GOIN HAPPIN IN A FIGHT BUT ITS GOING 2 B A GREAT ONE, YALL NEEDA STOP COUNTIN RUMBLE OUT CAUSE WHEN HE WIN I WILL B DA FIRST ONE ON HERE TELLIN EVERYBODY I TOLD U SO!

  16. Azusa says:

    Dude is a beast!! Blackzillas!! Johnson by head kick KO!!

  17. Paul Burns says:

    Midnight Johnson

  18. Dick Paradise says:

    looks like roids to me

    • Akid says:

      You must be totally out of shape if you think that body couldn’t come naturally… DOUCHE!!!!!!!!!!!!

      • KingGareth says:

        Yeah, he does look legit. He isn’t stupid big like a roider, and is looking much healthier. He just takes in a lot of protein and works hard to get that big. He also doesn’t eat Mcdonalds or other shit food like most people do.

  19. Ninja Oreo Dollop says:

    Dang that dude is huge. He’s like the Chiek Kongo of 185. I have a feeling his cardio and timing are going to be off when him and Vitor meet in the Octagon.

  20. Amir says:

    It’s always fun to watch two brutal strikers duke it out in the cage. I DEFINITELY think Rumble can strike with Vitor. Vitor doesn’t seem nearly as fast, strong or sharp as he used to be when he was in his early 20s. Two holes that I noticed in Rumble’s game though…. 1: He doesn’t seem to move out of the way of strikes very well. He just takes it, which isn’t a good thing at all. 2: When he’s on top of his opponent trying to do G&P, he tends to leave himself vulnerable to a lot of BJJ subs. In the past, he’s managed to escape the sub attempts using strength, not a whole lot of technique displayed from the ground. I’d like to see Anthony Johnson get a solid KO and keep moving up and put on a good performance. He does need to work on his ground game. He should definitely be more fluid on the ground. Honestly, I think Vitor has reached his prime a long time ago. He’s still good, but is he gonna work his way to the top at this age and after all those fights?? Seriously doubt it.

  21. Gary says:

    Dude vitor will knock him out, I believe akyama never got knocked out either until he stood with vitor!!! WAR VITOR!!!

  22. mmaislandjunkie says:

    this is gonna be an exciting fight to watch.

  23. SVUSO3 says:

    Even tho I’m rooting for Vitor, Rumble got a chance too. Both got knockout power, it only takes one punch from either guy to end the fight. Rumble might use his wrestling but hey it’s MMA.

  24. maurice says:

    Goin to be an absolute dog fight. I think rumble is much more durable. I think its a dog fite wit vitor gettin the better of it. Then vitor tires as rumble continues da fight and nabs a late stoppage.

  25. Eddie D says:

    Rumble is gonna destroy Vitor…lmao at all the belfort nutthuggers

  26. KingGareth says:

    Lol, Now Johnson is a light-heavyweight fighting at middleweight. He probably cuts the same amount of weight as before. Vitor won’t have a problem with AJ’s wrestling,and is a legit BJJ blackbelt anyways. I think AJ is a bit out of his league and had a better chance at 170 to get the title. It’s a good test for AJ but Vitor has the experience.
    Vitor by tko or submission.

  27. Long-Strong says:

    damnnnnnnnn… anyway, rooting for Vitor!

  28. steeler says:

    idk rumble could out wrestle him or maybe vitor will ko him idk its a great matchup

  29. Yosamitee-$u$ says:

    I guess alot of you guy’s did see that Jon fitch this weekend huh? My point is, I know better than to count either of them out because they both have crazy k.o power. Just sayin.
