Anthony Johnson is back.
"Rumble" and short-notice replacement Jose Augusto fought a back-and-forth war for six minutes and thirty seconds. Augusto visibly hurt his hand in the first round and got rocked by Johnson; however, the unknown commodity dropped and nearly pounded him out. Johnson shucked off a poor rear-naked choke attempt and scored a takedown of his own to end round one.
It did not take long for "Rumble" to recovery and absolutely sleep Augusto early in round two. Take a look below at the highlights.
