Anthony Johnson believes that his successor, José Augusto, is more “dangerous” than his original enemy, José Augusto.
“Rumble” was supposed to confront Romero Bellator 258 in a few days.
Unfortunately, the former UFC title challenger failed prewar medical care, I was pulled out of the battle.
Johnson was keen to finish his retirement as soon as possible and therefore accepted a late-notification opponent change.
He will play Jose Augusto on Friday night.
Augusto enjoyed his impressive Verator debut last month.
The Brazilian immediately submitted Jonathan Wilson to extend his current streak to five.
In an interview with SCMP MMA, Johnson talked about Romero ending the match and what he expects from August.
“Yeah, that’s what it is, Johnson said.” And I wish I could fight him this weekend, but I got another opponent who has won five straight wins at Jose. To me he is more dangerous than Joel. This guy has everything to gain and nothing to lose. And there were other fighters who wanted to fight me and intervene, but their time came. Let’s get the sauce if you want it. “
“They had their opponents in mind, but it wasn’t worth my time and effort. Johnson added, or was told he could fight Joel in July, I did all this work to fight Joel without waiting until July. Jose, a man, a very big prop for stepping up. I have a lot of respect for that man just to do it. It’s not only dangerous to me, it’s also dangerous to him. But it’s a huge opportunity for him. “(((Transcription by MMA News)
