Anthony Johnson Discusses Getting a Second Chance With The UFC
Posted by Larry Csonka on 04.25.2014

- Anthony Johnson recently spoke about getting a second chance with the UFC. Here are the highlights…

On What Led to the UFC Firing Him The First Time: "Do you not understand the word stupid? You're trying to get me to say something specific. You don't get no stupider than stupid. Miss weight, all three times. I guess just being stubborn," he added after a pause. "Not listening and thinking I knew everything. Most men, we're pretty dominant. We're alpha males, so we think we know everything, but we don't. "It's never too late to learn, and I'm glad I learned from two years ago because I don't want the same mistake to happen again."

On Realizing he Doesn't Know Everything: "Every man has been through this point in their life when they thought they knew everything," he said. "You just have to hit that wall where you realize, ‘I don't know everything,' and that's when you start to accept things and start being willing to expand your mind and learn."

On Not Calling People Out: "I would rather let my fighting do the talking for me," he said. "I've seen a lot of guys say (they) want a title shot and then (UFC matchmaker) Joe Silva will give them a fight to test them, and they lose it. … I'm going to keep my mouth closed and keep fighting hard."
