Default Anthony Johnson moves to 205

Seriously how the F did this guy ever make 170?!!?!!! He moves up still can't make weight. He'd be better off moving to heavy.

Standing next to the 6-foot-2 Anthony Johnson (11-4), it's hard to believe the broad-shouldered slugger ever found a way to make it down to 170 pounds.

And while his critics would immediately point to the four times Johnson has missed weight in his 15 professional bouts, "Rumble" isn't interested in arguing about the past.

After electing to make the move to light heavyweight, Johnson insists he's happier than ever. The stress and worries that once accompanied his fighting career are gone, and at 28 years old, Johnson feels he's making a new start to his career.

"It is a new start," Johnson told MMAjunkie.com ([Only registered and activated users can see links. ]). "It's now or never, and I still have a lot of improving to do, especially being at 205 pounds. There are good strikers, good ground guys. There are guys like Lyoto Machida at 205 pounds. He's a threat to anybody. We'll see. I'm just excited about it, and we'll see what I can do."

He's the biggest waste of talent ever. Guy could've been a ****ing destroyer. Instead, he's going to be Paul Daley.

You think he'll come in that light? I expect him to roll up at 215 and then take the 10% pay cut...

Imagine if a few months from now Rumble is fighting at heavyweight and Rashad has moved down to 170.

He's not half as good as Daley. Iv never once thought Johnson was going to ever be a destroyer. Unbelievably large welter but that's about it.
