UFC light-heavyweight contender Anthony Johnson has been placed on an indefinite suspension, following new abuse allegations from the mother of his children. Here’s the vague, detail-free official statement via UFC.com:
We are aware of the situation involving Anthony Johnson. As a result, we are suspending him indefinitely. We are using a third-party law firm to conduct a formal investigation and once we have more information, we’ll determine whether further course of action is necessary.
As with Nick Diaz’s DUI arrests, the UFC wants you to know that it’s aware of the situation, but the promotion no interest in informing fans what that situation is. BloodyElbow has the entire rundown on the new allegations against Johnson, but here’s the short version:
— Two years ago, Anthony Johnson allegedly punched the mother of two of his children in the face, knocking out two of her teeth. The incident took place at the victim’s place of employment, a supplement store. The victim claims she has security footage of the incident in her possession.
— The victim says that Johnson talked her out of pressing charges at the time. Since then, the victim has regularly received threatening calls and text messages, which she believes have been coming from Johnson’s friends.Read More DIGG THIS
