Georgia-native, Anthony “Rumble” Johnson, took care of business at UFC 202 with a one-punch KO of Glover Teixeira in 13 seconds of the very first round.
With the win, Johnson is 7-1 in his most recent run in the UFC, which has been at light heavyweight. His only loss coming via a submission loss to Daniel Cormier in a LHW title fight.
If all goes to plan, it looks like Rumble will get an opportunity to avenge that loss against Cormier sooner than later. Of course, that’s as long as Jon Jones doesn’t re-infect the division early than expected. There have been indications that Jones may be working a deal with USADA to return to the Octagon earlier than the expected 2 year suspension. Stay tuned on that one.
At least for now, Rumble is the next guy in line.
