Just three short years ago, Anthony "Rumble" Johnson was dismissed as a head case. He seemed likely to go down as a fighter who boasted all the physical tools, but one who was never going to quite get it together. It was right around this time in 2012 when Johnson lashed out at fans on Facebook after badly missing weight for a UFC bout against Vitor Belfort, which was far from his first weight-cutting mishap, then was cut from the roster following a submission loss. "Rumble" hasn't lost a fight read news >>
