    Despite his sudden and somewhat surprising retirement from mixed martial arts (MMA), it appears fight fans have not seen the last of former Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) light heavyweight title contender, Anthony Johnson.

    Well, so long as Jon Jones is around.

    That’s according to manager Ali Abdelaziz, who is convinced “Rumble” and his newfound affinity for bodybuilding will make his Octagon comeback in a heavyweight showdown opposite Jones at some point in 2019 (or beyond).

    “Anthony Johnson is 285 pounds right now, he wants to come back as a heavyweight,” Abdelaziz told ESPN’s Ariel Helwani. “He misses the sport and says he will come back to fight someone like Jon Jones. He’s resting his body. He’s having fun. He will fight again for sure, 100 percent.”

    . . .

    A hasty move up to middleweight yielded little fruit, so the former World Series of Fighting (WSOF) slugger kept heading north.

    Next stop, 265 pounds? Prob require yet another massive weight cut!

    I always thought Rumble would starch Jones

    Jones made friends with him to try and prevent it

    If Jones was too scared to fight anyone at HW, hell will freeze over before he fights Rumble at HW!

    People will clamor to anyone in the desperate hope they can beat Jones

    Jones just knocked out the heavyweight champ, who easily beat Rumble

    Juicehead would probably be even MORE 'enhanced' than Rumble is right now for that one.

    "I always thought Rumble would starch Jones"

    This an embarrassingly fucking retarded statement

    Sorry to be so harsh, but that's the PED GOAT bro, you really think Anthony fucking Johnson would beat him? He headkick ko'd DC bro, don't let your hate for Jones blind you.

    AJ is a legit problem for Jones. Jones got touched up by Gustaf's boxing, and while he fared well against Texeira, Rumble is the most powerful guy he will ever have fought

    Rumble just wants it to be fair when him and Jones fight, that's why Rumble started his own cycle months ago.

    I wonder how Jones would do against someone with almost as much Anabolic Steroids in their system as he's always fought with.

    Probably wouldn't do very well at all.

    No need to remove the weight limit. AJ can cut 20 pounds to make 265 ... if anyone can cut weight, it's Anthony Johnson.

    Jon is a bum but Rumble would gas in 20 seconds if he fought at even close to the weight he’s at now.

    Jon would just take him down and submit him.

    Jones would have to avoid the initial first round onslaught and then he would absolutely dominnnnaaatttte RUmble on the ground and submit him with ease.

    And Rumble starched Gus, who arguably beat Jones.
