Anthony Johnson has been bashed the last 24 hours by UFC fans and media for not making the required 185 pounds for his UFC 142 battle against Vitor Belfort. What many don’t understand is that he was in a life or death situation and could not even feel his legs at one point. “Rumble” can care less about his critics, he’s just happy to be alive and ready for the co-main event on Saturday night.
From Anthony Johnson via his Facebook account:
“I’m already laughing at what ppl are saying. Yeah it was for medical reason and I did what the UFC Dr Told me to do. Believe it or don’t I give a f**k cuz the ppl close to me were freaking out but I’m still alive and something like this has never happen before. Say what you want I’m still gonna do my thang. You try not having feeling in your legs and can’t move then and see how you look at life after that.”
