Some of you may have been diagnosed with radiation poisoning from that hydrogen bomb Anthony Rumble Johnson detonated on Charlie Brenneman’s face at UFC Live: Cruz vs. Johnson. If you have, it’s alright, just look at it as another way to take off a week from your job. We’re not sure when the athletic commission is going to outlaw stuffing plutonium in gloves (and feet) but until they do, Rumble Johnson will continue to tear through UFC’s welterweight division. Only three of Rumble Johnson’s ten wins were obtained via decision, the rest have come by inadvertently knocking his opponent through a voyage of time and space.
Now according to Brazil’s Folha, Rumble Johnson will now face Vitor Belfort in the UFC’s second return to Brazil in under a year. The bout will be held in the middleweight division at UFC 142 scheduled for January 14th 2012. There’s still the rumor that Vitor Belfort will also be tapped to film The Ultimate Fighter: Brazil with Anderson Silva as the opposing coach, however the two will not fight since Chael Sonnen is rumored to have a rematch with The Spider sometime in 2012.
