Anthony Johnson Would End His Retirement For Jon Jones Fight
Former UFC light heavyweight title contender Anthony Johnson is happily retired for the moment.
But if the promotion came calling with a bout vs. Jon Jones at heavyweight, “Rumble” would definitely be interested.
Appearing on Puff Digital’s Into The Weeds podcast recently, Johnson explained why he would take the fight vs. Jones, the reigning UFC light heavyweight champion.
“The only way I’d come out of retirement is if Jon Jones goes to heavyweight and then that’s when I’ll come out of retirement and fight Jon, I mean, that’s the only guy I want to fight,” Johnson said. “Cuz then at then end I can officially say, I did my job, my mission is complete, although I didn’t win a title, I fought the best of the best”
