Anthony Johnson’s only been retired from professional fighting for approximately half-a-year, but the feared slugger is reportedly considering a comeback.

Johnson announced he was retiring after he was submitted by light-heavyweight champ Daniel Cormier in April. At the time, Johnson relayed that he wanted to move into a life outside of the sport. But, during the latest “MMA Hour” on Monday, Johnson’s manager Ali Abdel-Aziz reported that “Rumble” is considering a comeback.

Abdel-Aziz also said that Johnson would be returning as a heavyweight, and that they plan to meet with UFC President Dana White this week.
