If UFC were ever to have an openweight division, Anthony Johnson would eagerly participate. He recently said that he wants to go after anyone holding a belt after he captures the UFC Welterweight Title.

Once he beats and legit contender then we can start talking about title contension, but Johnson does have some legitimate stand up

Definitely a litte cocky. He showed he could defend against jujitsu, for at least a little while, vs Clementi. His standup is fast and accurate. He picks his shots well. He'll beat the one-demensional Burns in his next fight, but I'd like to see him against real contenders.

I think anthony Johnson is the real deal and is going to be a champion one day, just give him time.

If they were to eliminate grappling and jui jitsu, he MIGHT have a chance

Kevin Burns one dimensional?! He looked well-rounded against Roan.

He obviously has never even seen burns fight otherwise he would know how horribly wrong his statement is. Just because you know nothing of a guy doesnt mean hes one dimensional

He should worry about the WW division. It's one of the deepest, if not the deepest division the UFC has. He should prove himself before he makes such a bold statement. He was a beast in his last fight though, and I look forward to his next fight. It's time for him to back up his words.
