Anthony “Rumble” Johnson has kept to himself and chose his words carefully whenever speaking to the public while this “UFC 187” drama played out. Johnson and Jones had a mutual respect and rarely ever trash talked each other leading up to their fight. As Jones’ stock has fallen overnight it seems, Johnson remained supportive of Jones and sent him a heartfelt message through Twitter:
@JonnyBones best of luck with everything bro.
Regardless of everything you are still the greatest light heavyweight champion of all time!
