Johnson faces Phil Davis on Saturday…
MMAjunkie Radio recently interviewed returning UFC fighter Anthony Johnson. Johnson returns to the UFC on Saturday, April 26 at UFC 172 against Phil Davis. Below are some highlights.
Johnson on not being bothered by Davis' attention toward Jon Jones instead of him: "It doesn't bother me at all. Phil can believe what he wants to believe. He's his own person, and he's his own man, so he's confident. That's cool with me. I don't think he's doubting me or overlooking me. He's just really trying to get some press, in my opinion. That's fine. Everyone has to do their own thing to get press every now and then."
Johnson on being back in the UFC: "I feel like I'm back where I belong, and I'm not going anywhere. I'm going to make sure I stay, and we won't have any repeat of history where I'm screwing up and being a knucklehead and missing weight and not caring. I'm going to make sure I follow the rules this time."
