It seems that Anthony Johnson will get a chance at redemption following his controversial TKO loss to Kevin Burns at July's UFN very soon. A Burns-Johnson rematch is to be finalized in the next few days and it will happen at the TUF 8 Finale.

Awesome. I thought this rematch would be built up. Glad to see that's not the case and this fight can be settled in the ring and not by an athletic commision that's more concerned about never being wrong rather than getting it right.

I've heard Burns' hand is fully healed so it shouldn't be a factor this time around. I don't know who I'll pick right now, because Burns did pretty well with one hand, who knows what he can do with two.

Johnson needs to cut that 30 lbs better this time because he looked gassed in the first Burns fight, guy walks around at like 200 pounds.

Key for Johnson to win, KO Burns just as fast as Johnson did to tommy speer so johnson doesnt get poked in the eye again.


dont want johnson fighting like this again.

I think Johnson will take it. He's has so much potential.

I think it was Mazzagatti who messed that one up. Either way, AJ will pick up where he left off. I think he'll finish Burns this time.

still going Johnson Round 1 KO. even though he said there was no hard feelings i think hes going to take the frustration he has towards the athletic commission out on Burns.

Glad to hear this rematch is happening..I'll pick Johnson due to how he was fighting last time, but I'll put cash down on Burns just in case, I think....

I knew that already I was saying we don't need a pre fight eye poke

I'm guessing this fight will make it on the main card and be on tv. the last time they fought it was, and this time only is more interesting. the last fight was ruined by the decision, but it definitly makes this time around more interesting.

i really like johnson, but he's too big to last the whole fight. i see burns making it through the first, then winning the next two rounds against a gassed johnson.

burns UD

I think Burns might take this, If Johnson prepares like he did last time.

He was looking tired and Burns should take advantage of that for a late KO or UD

Burns looked good in there first fight. I don't think it was because Johnson was gassed either. Because he looked good at the beginning of the fight. This is a tough fight to call for me. But I am intrested in seeing the rematch.
