Video: Anthony ‘Rumble’ Johnson is now lifting weights ... and he’s f—king huge

We already knew Anthony Johnson had big balls. Now, the rest of his body appears to be catching up.

That’s because the former Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) light heavyweight title contender has lots of free time on his hands after walking away from mixed martial arts (MMA) in favor of the green stuff, so “Rumble” decided to spend most of it inside the weight room.

To terrifying results.


The 34-year-old Johnson (22-6) recently teased a UFC return — at heavyweight — but first needs to complete six months of drug testing under the watchful eye of United States Anti-Doping Agency (USADA) before he can step foot inside the Octagon.

Between his cannabis facility and his new physique, I’m sure he’ll pass with flying colors.

In any event, the once-stagnant 265-pound weight class is heating up again, thanks to new additions like Francis Ngannou, Curtis Blaydes, and Alexander Volkov, as well as returning veterans like Josh Barnett.

Anyone think “Rumble” can make a run at the heavyweight strap?
