UFC on FOX 18: Anthony Johnson Fires Back at Ryan Bader, Asks “Who’s The Weak One?”
By FCF Staff
Leading up to UFC on FOX 18, Ryan Bader argued that fellow wrestlers like Daniel Cormier and Josh Koscheck had demonstrated that Anthony Johnson could be broken. But following the latter’s quick knockout win, Johnson had a few words in response to that theory.
Johnson defended a takedown attempt from Bader moments into the fight, and proceeded to finish “Darth” off with pounding punches from above. In the post-fight press conference, Johnson had this to say about the quick win (quote via MMA Fighting.com):
“They brainwashed him to make him think I was actually mentally weak,” Johnson said. “That’s fine with me. I won. To me, who’s the weak one?”
With the win, Johnson will almost certainly be booked to fight the winner of Daniel Cormier – Jon Jones II.
