He signed with who? I know he signed with Titan FC earlier this year and apparently turned down Bellator to get back in the UFC.

He missed the 185lbs weight limit in his last fight against Dave Branch. Came in 10 pounds over weight. I wonder how he expects UFC to trust him anymore.

Oh yes, that was four months after the last time he missed weight and he got cut from the UFC mainly because of that. That guy doesn't want to learn. If the UFC ever decides to resign him, they should give him only HW fights so they wouldn't have to worry whether he made weight.

I want to see him get at least 2 or 3 fights with Titan FC at 205 proving he can make weight and if he does and fights well, I wouldn't mind seeing him back in the UFC.

You guys sitting here pointing fun at him and laying on your couches don't know anything. Have any of you ever cut weight before? The fact he use to cut from over 200 pounds to 170 was a mericale, and cutting that much weight isn't possible the older you get, therefore, your posts are completely pointless to me.

All of the other fighters make weight, those who miss weight once are the exceptions. Johnson missed weight four times now and he isn't really old. That's four times in 15 fights, that's more than in a quarter of his fights! He only has to accept that he is not a MW and even less a WW. Then the weight cutting isn't that hard anymore.

I understand he missed weight many times, and think he deserved to be cut form the UFC for it, because it was a bit excessive missing weight that many times. But at the same time he was cutting way too much weight, and I can understand why his body stopped allowing him to cut the weight. I just hate seeing people who sit at their desks all day pointing fun at guys when they have no clue what those atheletes are going through.

Did you guys even watch the video? He specifically said they offered a catch-weight option, and even though he tried to cut to middle weight, he settled for the 195 lbs weight limit. So technically, he did make weight.
