After bobbing and weaving away from the dangers of delicious Swedish cuisine, UFC light heavyweight contender Anthony Johnson had some unpleasant to unkind words for current champ Jon Jones. With a number one contender’s bout with local Alexander Gustafsson on Johnson’s horizon at UFC on Fox 14, before “Rumble” made weight he was asked for his personal hot take on Jones’ recent bust for cocaine usage.
A graduate of the D.A.R.E program when he was in grade school, Johnson was not too pleased with the face of the UFC’s 205 pound division partying ways. Our friends at kimura.se caught up with Johnson in Stockholm to ask the light heavyweight about his upcoming bout with Gustafsson, making weight, and of course Bones Jones.
Somewhat harsh words from a man who if he wins at UFC on Fox 14, will one day have to stand face to face with Jones. How will Johnson answer Jones after he said live on recorded video that the UFC should’ve punished him more for his failed drug test? Anthony “I guess they possibly could’ve punished Jones more. I’m not sure” Johnson versus Jon “Bones” Jones is clearly a bitter rivalry in the making.
