Anthony Johnson: 'Lucky' John Howard doesn't belong in the UFC

Quoteworthy:

"Howard ain't got no stand-up at all. He's lucky Roberts wasn't stronger or he probably would have gotten submitted. Howard is soft; he doesn't belong in the UFC. I will be glad to show him this if he's my next opponent. But congratulations on your win. If you fight me like that, you won't survive. You better work on that stand-up buddy!"

Injured welterweight striker Anthony Johnson was not impressed with John Howard's winning performance over Daniel Roberts at the UFC on Versus event last Sunday night in Denver. "Doomsday" survived a series of submission attempts from the newcomer before putting his lights out with a couple of vertical bombs. Still, "Rumble" thinks he was lucky to survive and promises a different result if and when these two rivals finally settle their score. Early predictions?
