I would hope that was his last chance at 185, I can't believe any promoter would book him in a fight in that weight class again.

Rumbled Again

Anthony Rumble Johnson has found himself in deep water again by missing weight for his fight this weekend. Rumble was 9 pounds over weight for his 185 clash weighing in at 194, his opponent also missed weight so both now face off in a 195 catch weight.

I can't see Rumble ever stepping back in the UFC now, how many times does he have to do this before he realises the cut is to hard for him. He's went and messed things up big time now.

Diaz..Edgar.. Cormier.. Cain.. Mir.. Overeem.. Jon Jones

WTF. It seems like he has a harder time making 185 than he did 170.

I honestly think his problem was once he moved up in weight class he actually put on more muscle. Now he is having even more issues. He needs to go to 205 and only bulk to 230 or so (which he may already be close to).

There'll come a time that no promoter will take on Johnson and his blatant lack of respect for his opponent and his own reputation. what kind of a fighter shows a total disregard for a promotions, and a commissions requirement of the fighter like showing up on weight? and lets on constantly occur?!!

Wow, when I watched Inside MMA this Monday they did a piece on him and he was there talking about how he was working with a nutritionist and everything.

The good news is he's not that good anyway, he's just a big, muscular looking black guy who beat up guys he had a ridiculous amount of weight on and still couldn't beat top fighters.

They need to start putting a clause in his contract forcing him to fight a HW if he can't make 185.
