Johnson’s been in the news recently, after he reportedly insulted a woman on Facebook, and claimed he had thrown her yoga mat across the gym he was working out in. The light-heavyweight has apologized for the rant.
The UFC released the following statement regarding the incident:
UFC is aware of the situation involving Anthony Johnson. We take these matters seriously and have commenced a formal investigation by a third-party law firm. We will act accordingly once we gather more information
Johnson was also investigated by the UFC last year after allegations of domestic violence were brought against him. Those charges were eventually dropped and Johnson returned to action.
