Anthony Johnson Headed To Light Heavyweight Ranks For Titan FC

Former UFC fighter Anthony Johnson seems to finally get it when it comes to his weight.

Titan Fighting Championships owner/CEO Joe Kelly recently told Bloody Elbow Radio that “Rumble’s” next fight for the promotion will come at 205 pounds.

Johnson, of course, has had numerous issues with his weight. He was dismissed from the UFC after missing weight by 11 pounds for his middleweight bout with Vitor Belfort earlier this year.

“(Johnson) has stated that in his next fight, he wants to fight for us at 205, so that’s where the fight will be in July,” Kelly said. “We’ll see.”

Johnson defeated Dave Branch in his debut for Titan FC, though the bout came at a catchweight, much to the surprise of many who were expecting it to me at 185.
