Don't blame Anthony Johnson because Dan Hardy can't wrestle (Video)

That's what Johnson says, who disappointed fight fans the world over by avoiding a "Rumble" with "The Outlaw" in favor of exploiting the Brit's weakness -- his grappling. Oh, and if Hardy doesn't like it then "f*ck him." Strong words, Maniacs. Agree or disagree?

"Feel good. Just had an autograph signing here today at OCM and everything's been cool.

"Fuck Dan Hardy, (if he's going to say I caused the fight to be boring). It ain't my fault he can't wrestle, shit. You know what I'm saying? I just used his weakness against him. If that's what caused the fight to be boring than oh well, make it fun and stand on the feet and don't let me take you down.

"I just, you know what, I always knew how to wrestle and of course I knew how to strike; I just plan on mixing it up more. This is one of those fights where, I just used somebody's weakness against them finally and now the world hates it, you know what I'm saying? So, like I said, fuck 'em.

"I don't see myself in title contention at all, I still got a lot of people to beat to be considered a contender in my book. Dan is tough, I mean he's still a friend, regardless if he said the fight was boring. You can't get upset cause I used his weakness against him and that was my strength. Who wouldn't do that, you know what I mean? If I can't stop somebody's right hand, why the hell would they stop throwing that right hand at me, you know what I mean? That's part of the game, it's called mixed martial arts and I'm just trying to be more of a well-rounded fighter.

"I just want to fight. I don't care anymore who I fight. I'm to the point now where it's like, it is what it is, they throw me out a name and I'm like, 'alright, I'll fight them, no matter who it is.'

"GSP all the way (in the Jake Shields fight). Jake Shields has a chance but it's not, you know... GSP is so good, it's hard to beat the guy, you know? But I still give it to GSP unless Jake Shields catches him in one of those crazy ass submissions that he does, you know what I mean, he's really good at submissions. But of course everybody knows his weakness is stand-up so, like you say, you gotta use somebody's weakness against them when you're in a fight. But I'm still going with GSP.

"Thank you (to the fans) for supporting me, thank you for always believing in me and thank you for my haters. I love y'all, too, baby."
