Lost in the hoopla of Anthony Johnson's coming out party in Sweden this past weekend was news that the UFC's international expansion will include two fresh locations in 2015: Krakow, Poland on April 11, and Glasgow, Scotland on July 18. Undefeated women's strawweight Joanne Calderwood is the most accomplished Scottish fighter on the UFC's roster, so it's safe to assume the Glasgow-native will be featured on the latter card once summertime rolls around.

Before Anthony Johnson stopped Alexander Gustfasson with vicious ground and pound last Saturday, he rattled him with an overhand right. Now a video shows that he also hit him with a stunning headbutt. When Anthony Johnson finished Alexander Gustafsson in the main event of UFC on FOX 14, he finished him with a bang. A crushing right hand by "Rumble" sent the Swedish superstar to the canvas, and it took only a few more seconds (and punches) until referee Marc Goddard had to step in for the save. S read news >>

With a win over Alexander Gustafsson in Sweden, Anthony Johnson emerged as the top contender in the light heavyweight division and is expected to be booked for a championship bout opposite Jon Jones soon.

When it comes down to it, Demetrious Johnson may be the UFC's most approachable champion. A tireless worker with lightning speed, unparalleled skill, and a video game obsession to boot, the UFC's 125-pound king fashioned the flyweight division into his own personal playground over the past three years, all while keeping a smile on his face and rarely saying a bad word about anyone. But in many ways, Johnson's in-cage success has struggled to translate to out-of-cage enthusiasm. With middling pay read news >>

He's no salesman, that's for sure... unless he's peddlin' dynamite!* If Anthony Johnson is selling anything, it's a guarantee of action. And, at this moment, a guarantee of change.

"Anthony 'Rumble' Johnson will never fight Jon 'Bones' Jones," you would have said. Bones was coming off a fourth-round destruction of Quinton "Rampage" Jackson in his first title defense; Johnson was head-kicking natural lightweights while repeatedly struggling to make the welterweight division's 170-pound cu read news >>
