Anthony Johnson: "He's about to be snaggletooth when I get done with him"

New Rumble interview.

Quote:
On his fight with John Howard...

"His style donít match up with me good at all. Heís fought some tough guys and I give him credit, but he ainít fought me or nobody with my style. If he thinks that his counterkicks and his counterpunches from hisÖI donít know if he still does it now, but itís not going to work and that bootleg wrestling of his is not going to work. He has another thing coming if he thinks it is. He ainít no Koscheck or anything close as far as his takedowns and stuff. He ainít as powerful as Koscheck and if heís not going to take me down, heís going to have a bad night. He ainít going to stand and bang with me; he ainít going to catch me like he caught Dennis Hallman, I can tell you that."

"But like I said, John Howard is tough. Heís not a pushover. I donít think Iím going to go in there and run over the guy. Iím going to go out there and fight him and itís going to be a good fight. He knows how bad I have wanted to fight him and Iím sure he is training his ass off for me because he knows Iím going to bring it. I expect a good fight. Itís like I said on my Facebook, his time has run out and now heís about to be snaggletooth when I get done with him."

"Iím almost at a loss for words as to what I think this fight is going to be like. I heard he called me 'Crumble.' He says I crumble when I get pressured and stuff, but ainít nobody made me crumble yet. I had one mental breakdown and that was when Koscheck pulled his little stunt, but other than that, I ainít broke down in no fight. I go out there and fight with everything I got and everybody knows that, so as far as me crumbling, it ainít going to happen."

"I see a lot of people say why step down a level where Howardís at, but Howard is an up-and-comer and I have already somewhat established a name in mixed martial arts myself. A lot of people say I should be fighting top 10 guys, but you know what man? Anybody on any day can get beat, top 10 or not. It doesnít matter man, a fight is a fight. It is what it is."

He probably means he'll rearrange his teeth with his punches or some shit.

''You probably thought this was a bright idea, who hit the light switch? Hype shift, this is where it looks like the fight's fixed, tight fist, beat you with the hand that I write with, punchlines that remind Rodney King of the night sticks...''

Why doesn't he just concentrating on making weight?

I am starting to disrespect Rumble now, and give it up with all the old "Koscheck pulled his stunt" crap too.


Big Thanks to KryOnicle for the sig!

I think so too.

I like the "crumble" comment though, kinda funny..

he needs to get over the fact that josh kicked his ass as a better fighter.

Yeah Koscheck did kick his ass it was sick, but I think Anthony Johnson is going to KILL this guy pretty bad ether way. And i might put my money on Johnson if he gets a rematch with Koscheck no disrespect to Kos but Anthony didn't act himself probably because Kos pushed the pace and took him out of his game plan, but i think a rematch would be a way better fight, or i should say a way better prepared fight for Anthony, Kos will probably have the same game plan but a little tweaked but Anthony would know what to expect and be ready for him, I wouldn't want to see it so soon but in the future....

I think Howard is out of his league with this fight. But if you think about it, it's a win/win for him. If he loses, "Ah, he was suppose to lose." If he wins, "OH MY GOD! This kid is a beast. Rumble has absolutely nothing to gain from this fight. If he wins it'll be because Howard's not his level of fighter and will not be automatically catapulted back to the top of the class. If he loses, then he will be shot down to be low tier fighter. I think cRumble will win, but if he doesn't absolutely dominate this fight, I think his stock will plummet.
