Anthony Johnson: Knockout Artist, Class Act

Posted on by MMAWeekly.com Staff

Though he’s a killer in the Octagon — a fact he proved with his first round destruction of Luigi Fioravanti on Saturday night — Anthony Johnson showed he has the heart of a champion at UFC Fight Night 17.

Before he left the Octagon, he took to the mic, critical of his own performance. “I’m happy I got a win. My performance, I could have done so much better.”

But he didn’t leave before giving thanks to those who mean a lot to him, his grandparents.

“This fight is dedicated to my grandmother, she’s here tonight,” said an emotional Johnson, “and my grandfather, he died three years ago.”
