UFC President Dana White may not have been in attendance for Anthony Johnson's massacre of Alexander Gustafsson this past Saturday at UFC on FOX 14, but even he can't believe the ease with which Johnson handled the mighty Swede in his own backyard. "It's crazy," White said Wednesday on The Jim Rome Show. "If you look at Anthony Johnson, Anthony Johnson started at 170 pounds, right? And this isn't like boxing where if you move up a weight class, it's three pounds. You move up a weight class here, read news >>
