File this under "shocking news". As most of you know, Anthony Johnson was fired from the UFC from repeated failed attempts at making weight at both Welterweight AND Middleweight. Johnson was prepared to revamp his career post UFC and make a run at making it back to the Big Leagues. His attempts are not faring well. He was set to face David Branch(another UFC vet) at the TItan 22 Fighting Championship. Johnson missed weight for his last UFC fight with Vitor Belfort, which caused his release from the organization. So what does he weigh in for his 1st fight post UFC release? He weighs in at a whopping 194.2 lbs. Yep, almost 10 lbs over the limit of 185. What was even more unprofessional was the fact that David Branch also weighed in heavy at 189.2 lbs. Therefore the match was changed to a catch-weight of 195 lbs. This does not fare well if Johnson ev wants to make it back to the UFC.
Bloodyelbow.com is reporting the "surprising" news. I have no idea how this guy used to make welterweight, on occasion. Now making 185 lbs. is becoming a real problem
SPOILER ALERT. Or more like DUMB A$$ ALERT. I have been very sick for the past few days and didn't realize till this post was finished that their fight was last night and that Anthony Johnson won by UD and that he said he is moving to LIGHT HEAVYWEIGHT where he can go for missing weight at yet another weight class. I apologize
