Henri Hooft says Anthony Johnson’s post-MMA career ‘has to do with football’
(mmafighting.com)
Anthony Johnson may not be aiming to be the next great linebacker for the Los Angeles Rams, but according to Johnson’s longtime head coach Henri Hooft, the next career for the newly retired UFC light heavyweight contender still has something to do with the gridiron. “I’m not going to go into details, because I don’t know the real details, but everybody sees his (social media) pages and it has to do with football,” Hooft said Monday on The MMA Hour. “I don’t know, I didn’t really discuss the details, but he seems to be busy with this for awhile and enjoying it. It has something to do, totally different than with MMA, and I think if you really want to stop fighting, you really need to step away from it, because if you keep hanging in there, you’ll probably get lured back in there.

I have my own family here, my kids and stuff, but I miss my cousins, my parents, and my sisters and brothers.”
