By FCF Staff
Following Anthony Johnson’s surprising retirement announcement this weekend at UFC 210, the 33 year-old is putting the “Rumble” nickname aside.
Johnson, who was submitted by light-heavyweight champ Daniel Cormier on Saturday, recently posted the following statement:
Hello Monday! A new beginning starts today and I am so happy about that… My body can recover and I can focus on something different other than mma. MY life has been amazing and I haven't come close to scratching the surface. I'll miss mma and every aspect of the game, but my time is over and I'm ready to watch the new generation take over. Now I can be Anthony Johnson/AJ and not Anthony Rumble Johnson! Thank you all for the love and support throughout the yrs… Rumble Squad forever! #RumbleSquad The End of Rumble
