"It's my meniscus again. It's been torn for a year and a half now. I ain't dumb enough to fight this guy injured, especially after so much trash talking between me and him. He's a tough fighter and I guarantee his leg kick would have done more damage to my knee. That would be dumb to go in there and I'm smarter than that. I'm not ducking this guy. I promise you we're gonna fight no matter what. We will fight. Can I say when? No, but when my knee is fixed and 100 percent, oh hell yeah."
UFC welterweight standout Anthony Johnson updates Steve Cofield on his knee injury and the rationale behind withdrawing from their upcoming fight. "Rumble" is due back in the doctor's office next week to try and figure out a way to get his lingering knee injury corrected once and for all. Johnson and Howard have quite the verbal feud going but fans may have to wait until the latter part of 2010 before these two settle their score. Early predictions?
