Anthony Johnson, fired by UFC after missing weight in his fight with Vitor Belfort, just missed weight today by ten pounds for his fight with David Branch for the Titan Fighting Championships tomorrow night in Kansas City.

The Johnson vs. Branch fight headlines a show that airs on HDNet.

Johnson reached a deal with Branch to give him $4,000 of his purse for Branch to agreed to the fight.

On 1/13, Johnson's body shut down cutting weight for a match the next day with Vitor Belfort in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. He ended up weighing 197 pounds for a fight in the 185 pound weight class, and lost in the first round.

Dude's one of the most entertaining fighters out there but I don't think there's anyone out there who needs Mike Dolce more than Johnson.

Sounds like it was 194.5 or so from Twitter.

This guy isn't even trying. Just go to LHW. Not everyone will be as kind as Belfort and Branch and keep the fight on and 12 to 10 pound misses doesn't make me think he'll hit it for his next fight.

Might as well just fight at HW, then you don't have to cut any weight.

It's not like he'll be facing UFC HW's in these other orgs.

Enough fucking everyone around, just move to LHW. Quit looking for some advantage in the fight by attempting something you clearly can't do. It's not funny anymore, it's just sickening. I'm off the THC for a bit here so I'm irritable.

Thats terrible. Quit the sport or fight at a weight class you can actually handle. This fuck up right here may have sealed his fate with the ufc.

Come on, Rumble. Get your shit together. It's getting harder and harder for your fans to defend you.

With the current TUF ratings, maybe they should combine TUF with the biggest loser. They can get Rumble and a bunch of other MMA fighters who frequently miss weight, put them all in the house with tons of junk food, then you kick off the fighter who misses weight at the end of the show instead of actually have them fight.

Everybody has already touched on the subject. I hope AJ gasses hard and Branch taps his overweight ass.

What you've just said is one of the most insanely idiotic things I have ever heard. At no point in your rambling, incoherent response were you even close to anything that could be considered a rational thought. Everyone in the playground is now dumber for having listened to it. I award you no props, and may the mods have mercy on your soul.
