Anthony “Rumble Johnson is back on the title hunt after failing to beat Daniel Cormier at UFC 187 for the vacant UFC title in May of last year.
Rumble couldn’t keep up with the pressure that Cormier was unleashing and fell victim to a RNC “rear naked choke” before the end of the third round. Cormier was in trouble in the first round when Rumble connected and dropped DC but couldn’t put him away.
It wasn’t until midway into the second,visual signs of fatigue and frustration were setting in for Johnson as he faded and was ultimately submitted.
Johnson hopes to rebound after the Cormier loss and hopes to solidify a strong foot-hold on his place in the division, more importantly a certain Jon Jones will be making a return back to action wanting to reclaim his title.
