Anthony Johnson shocked the MMA world back in April, when he announced he was hanging up the gloves, and now he’s raising eyebrows with a recent tweet.
After Johnson was submitted by Daniel Cormier at UFC 210, the feared slugged announced he was done fighting. “Rumble” said he was planning to retire, regardless of whether he won the 205 title or not, and that he’s going to pursue opportunities outside of MMA.
Well, during yesterday’s UFC Fight Night 109 card, Johnson tweeted out this:
I'm getting that itch!
Show these boy's how to throw an uppercut the Right way!

Chances are Johnson’s just playing around here, and isn’t seriously considering ending his retirement, which was announced just weeks ago.
