Anthony Johnson meets David Branch at Titan Fighting Championship 22

Quote:
Banished UFC middleweight/welterweight Anthony Johnson (10-4) faces fellow UFC vet David Branch (10-2) at Titan Fighting Championship 22.

HDNet's Ron Kruck today announced the booking, which headlines the event.

Titan Fighting Championship 22 takes place May 25 Memorial Hall in Kansas City, Kan. The night's main card airs on HDNet.

Johnson, who went 6-4 in the UFC, had climbed into welterweight and middleweight title contention with a 5-1 run from 2008 to 2011. However, back in January at UFC 142 in Brazil, he badly missed weight for a middleweight bout with Vitor Belfort after weighing in at 197 pounds. It marked his third time missing weight in the UFC, and Johnson was promptly released.

He now meets middleweight Branch, a Renzo Gracie Jiu-Jitsu product who went 2-2 in a four-fight UFC run. Branch sandwiched wins over Rich Attonito and Tomasz Drwal betwwen losses to Rousimar Palhares and Gerald Harris. However, the .500 record wasn't enough to keep Branch in the octagon.

He's since earned wins over Dominique Steele and Jeremy May while competing on the regional scene.

"Anthony Johnson and David Branch are two of the most aggressive, powerful and athletic middleweights in the world, and to have this as the main event of Titan 22 is a defining moment for this brand," Titan FC CEO Joe Kelly stated. "Titan 22 is going to end with 'Rumble' vs. Branch, but wait until you see the fights leading up to it. There will be more familiar faces, and I will be announcing more incredible matchups soon."

I wonder what weight this will be contested at. He could try to fight at middleweight. Either that or just settle for lightheavyweight.

I believe it is going to be held at ?W, that is the only sure fire way to know that Johnson will show up on weight. The safest thing would be to put it at HW, but Johnson would still probably show up at 273lbs.

Ok the man isn't that heavy. But weight is a legitimate question here. He had problems with weight at both welterweight and middleweight.

DUNCAN55 has a little shameless behaviour in the past
Johnson needs to find a better nutritionalist in order for him to make weight and not come in over the limit.

Yeah, how he'd made weight so many times before without proper nutrition is a mystery to me. Maybe like so many other guys he should get with Mike Dolce. It's amazing how many guys that man has helped.
