The UFC released a statement saying they will bring in a third-party to investigate Anthony Johnson.
Johnson directed a Facebook rant towards a woman at the same gym as the light heavyweight contender. “Rumble” is set to return to action at UFC 191 next month vs. Jimi Manuwa.
“UFC is aware of the situation involving Anthony Johnson. We take these matters seriously and have commenced a formal investigation by a third-party law firm. We will act accordingly once we gather more information.”
Johnson (19-5) apologized for the incident in which he grabbed the yoga mat from the female and threw it across the gym.
