Anthony Johnson takes step forward on road to redemption by beating Antonio Rogerio Nogueira By: Dave Doyle, Yahoo Sports
"SAN JOSE, Calif. – Just over two years ago, Anthony "Rumble" Johnson lashed out at his critics over Facebook, after he missed weight for a middleweight bout with Vitor Belfort by an astonishing 11 pounds.
"'I don't give a [expletive],' Johnson said in a long-since-deleted post. 'I'm laughing at you all.'
"Johnson went on to lose in the first round to Belfort in what was assumed to be the last anyone would ever see of the Dublin, Ga., native.
"Contrast that to the words that came out of Johnson's mouth Saturday night in the Octagon at the SAP Center, after he needed just 44 seconds to score a vicious TKO victory over veteran Antonio Rogerio Nogueira in the co-feature bout of UFC on FOX 12."
