SAN JOSE – Anthony Johnson is making a lot of people wonder just what he was doing messing around at welterweight all those years.

Johnson (18-4 MMA, 9-4 UFC) needed just 44 seconds to take out Antonio Rogerio Nogueira (21-6 MMA, 4-3 UFC) in the co-main event, his second fight since returning to the UFC as a light heavyweight after being sent packing two and a half years ago after issues making weight at 170 pounds.

But at a new camp, and with a renewed energy at 205 pounds, Johnson showed he’s a force to be dealt with in the UFC in the light heavyweight division.

The bout was part of Saturday’s UFC on FOX 12 event at SAP Center in San Jose, Calif. It aired on FOX.

Check out the highlights above.
