(Goodnight, sweet prince.)
I can’t decide what to make of Anthony Johnson’s public campaign to brand John Howard as a fight-ducking coward. He says he’s just pissed off that Howard backed out of a fight with him, but that seems like a strange explanation. And yet that’s what he told Versus.com when the subject of Howard’s potential bitchassness came up:
"He said it was his manager’s decision, but I think, at the end of the day, it’s really his decision. I don’t think your manager should make all your decisions, especially when you’re supposed to fight and if you are going to say, ‘yeah’ or ‘no.’ … I’m speechless about the whole thing … I’m going to eventually get to fight him and knock his teeth out. It’ll happen. I want to beat him up just because he backed out."
It’s hard to see what Johnson really has to gain by fighting Howard, whose UFC debut saw him win a fairly boring split decision over Chris Wilson. Meanwhile, Johnson has been racking up impressive wins against more experienced opponents like Luigi Fioravanti and Kevin Burns.Read More DIGG THIS
