Says it made sense…
- Dana White recently commented on the UFC bringing Anthony Johnson back to the promotion. Here is what he had to say….
"Obviously the kid's been on a big win streak – he's won six fights in a row. He's an interesting light heavyweight now. And we needed somebody to fight Phil Davis, too. Phil Davis has been flapping out in the wind here. All the other fights in the light heavyweight division are done – guys are either fighting or hurt or something else. So it made sense to bring him back and it's an interesting, exciting fight."
Johnson (16-4 MMA, 7-4 UFC) will face Phil Davis (12-1 MMA, 8-1 UFC) at UFC 172, which takes place April 26 at Baltimore Arena in Baltimore.
