"I really don't know what to say. I really started working on my kicks two months ago. I have the best trainers in the world. It just happened, I decided to throw it and it worked."

-- Anthony Johnson reacts to his devastating third round knockout of Kevin Burns with a head kick at The Ultimate Fighter (TUF) 8 Finale last night at The Pearl at the Palms Casino Resort in Las Vegas, Nevada. "Rumble" trains with Strikeforce Middleweight Champion and Sanshou practitioner Cung Le. He is typically known for his powerful punching power, but he switched things up last night to put Burns to sleep with a crushing kick. In doing so, Johnson put the final ribbon on a solid fight and scored revenge for the first encounter, which ended in controversy.
