Rich Clementi vs. Anthony Johnson has been added to UFC 76. The fight between UFC & TUF veteran Clementi and UFN 10 participant Johnson was signed last night, bringing the UFC 76 card back up to 9 fights.

Article

This might be a bad fight for Clementi, his last fight was less than 2 weeks ago so that won't give him much time to recover and prepare.

I guess their fighting at 170 right? Either way Johnson is to much for him.

I see Clementi winning this one via early sub. Although I was very impressed with Johnson in his first fight so it could go either way.

Yeah, this is a Welterweight fight. I'm taking Johnson mainly because Clementi is fighting again on such short notice, he won't be 100%.

Yeah, I'm going with Johnson. Clementi normally fights at '55, right? And I remember Johnson being a very big looking 170. Clementi is a tough guy and has some good submission skills but I don't think he will be able to handle Johnson's explosiveness and strength. Johnson by early TKO.

im not a fan of clemanti at all and even though ive seen a total of 14 seconds from johnson, i think he'll KO no love. this very well could be clementis last chance in the ufc so he might come out on fire.

Johnson via KO/TKO in the 1st but not as fast as the 1 against Reiner

Never seen much of Johnson, but he looks like Houston Alexander at a lighter weight. I don't think Clementi should take this fight at 170, he's a little small for the divison, but maybe 'experience' will take over......Johnson KO 1st round. lol.
