UFC 210

Plenty of people likely predicted that Daniel Cormier would defend the 205 crown last night at UFC 210, but no one saw Anthony Johnson’s retirement coming.

After Johnson was submitted by Cormier in the second round, he dropped jaws throughout the MMA world by announcing he’s hanging up the gloves. Since Johnson is just 33 year’s old, and because he had wrecked Ryan Bader, Jimi Manuwa and Glover Teixeira leading up to last night, it was a shocking ¬†announcement to say the least.

Following the card, “Rumble” spoke with the UFC’s Megan Olivi, and offered some insights into why he’s decided to retire. You can check it out below.
