Not long after Anthony Johnson starting making headlines for  a rant he posted via his social media, the UFC light-heavyweight has reportedly issued an apology.

Recently it was reported that an angry Johnson had criticized and insulted a woman, following a verbal exchange he had with her at a gym. According to a follow up report from MMA Junkie.com, however, Johnson has issued an apology on Facebook (Full Contact Fighter was unable to link through to that content).

Here is what Johnson reportedly said:

“I shouldn’t have gotten that upset from the start but I did, I mean I’m human,” Johnson posted. “I said some pretty nasty things about a female from my gym while full of emotions (not a good idea) so I do wanna apologize to her for being rude as I was and not taking a break to relax after our argument.

“Sorry to everyone else too for having to witness me getting upset about a argument in the gym. I’m not going to sugarcoat it and make it seem like I’m a angel because I’m not but I will admit when I’m wrong. Other than that I hope everybody has a awesome day.”

Johnson is scheduled to fight Jimi Manuwa at UFC 191 on September 5th.
