Anthony Johnson Willing To Fight Again If The Price Is Right


Anthony Johnson retired shortly after UFC 210, where he suffered a second round submission loss to then UFC Light Heavyweight Champion Daniel Cormier.

“Rumble” may be willing to compete again, but the price would have to be right to end the retirement.

“If the price is right, anything can happen,” Johnson said on The Luke Thomas Show (via Bloody Elbow). “He [Dana White] knows that when the time is right, we’ll talk about it. But right now, the time just isn’t right. There’s no point.”

Johnson has twice before challenged for the UFC Light Heavyweight Title, but came up short on both attempts.

The fighter says that if the comeback were to come to fruition, it would be a heavyweight division encounter.

“If I’m gonna do it I wanna do it at heavyweight,” Johnson said. “Everybody can eat, be fat, and happy and go out there and slug it out and see what happens.”

A still retired Johnson has previously competed at welterweight, middleweight and light heavyweight in the UFC, but has competed as a heavyweight outside of the promotion and in the World Series Of Fighting. Johnson defeated former UFC Heavyweight Champion Andrei Arlovski by decision in a heavyweight division attraction at the WSOF 2.
