I spoke with Anthony Johnson during the WSOF 2 post fight scrum at Revel Casino in Atlantic City, NJ, after his unanimous decision victory over Andrei Arlovski. He touched on several topics including: a possible injury to his right hand, fighting at heavyweight again, his future with WSOF, and sticking up for his team the “Blackzillians.”
He also spoke about being nervous before hearing the judges decision.
“The way the judges have been scoring lately, yeah– I was praying to Jesus that they gave me the win,” Johnson said. “I didn’t know it was going to be unanimous. I think that’s what it was, unanimous or whatever. But I had no idea that it would be unanimous. I was a little nervous, but I thought I won.”
