Johnson says winning more important than keeping promise at UFC Fight Night 24
SEATTLE – From the moment Anthony Johnson vs. Dan Hardy was first announced for Saturday’s UFC Fight Night 24 event, fans salivated at the thought of two lethal strikers standing toe-to-toe.
And in each and every pre-fight media appearance, both sluggers promised they wouldn’t even consider taking the fight to the floor.
But things played out very differently during the co-feature. Johnson utilized his wrestling background to control the action on the floor for 15 rather uneventful minutes – and he makes no apologies for his performance.
