Anthony Johnson Stops Jake Rosholt to Record Third Straight Win
By FCF Staff
Anthony Johnson continues to succeed as a light-heavyweight, as the UFC veteran scored a second round, TKO win over Jake Rosholt to record his third straight win. The victory, which reportedly came via a headkick, took place at a Xtreme Fight League card in Catoosa, Oklahoma.
Since exiting from the UFC, after his TKO loss to Vitor Belfort in January, Johnson (13-4) has also earned wins over Esteves Jones and David Branch.
The loss was Rosholt’s (12-5) second in a row, as the UFC vet was coming off a first round, submission loss to Matt Thompson in June.
