It sounds like Anthony “Rumble” Johnson will put his name back in the mix for the U.S. Anti-Doping Agency (USADA) testing pool next month. This means he is hopeful for his UFC return.
“Everything is going smooth,” Johnson told MMA Junkie at a recent Dominance MMA media day. “No date set, yet. I just plan on catching a lot of bodies when I come back, that’s all I know. It don’t matter if it’s heavyweight or light heavyweight. I’ll knock ’em all out. It don’t matter.”
