My Top Five Fighters of the Future

Anthony "Rumble" Johnson

Anthony Johnson is more experienced than some, but is still not 100 percent ready.

He first made his presence known at Ultimate Fight Night 10, knocking out Chad Reiner in thirteen seconds. He was then put up against UFC veteran Rich Clementi. He was out-classed and submitted in the second round.

He was then matched up with TUF 6 runner-up Tommy Speer, whom he KO'd in 51 seconds. After that fight he was paired with Kevin Burns. He controlled the majority of the fight, but was illegally poked in his eye, resulting in a TKO. This fight was highly controversial because Burns was warned several times about the eye pokes.

Johnson however remained calm in defeat, and took it in stride.

A rematch was set-up, Johnson ended up winning by TKO in the third round with a Rashad Evans like head kick.

He was then put up against Luigi Fioravanti, who he TKO'd in Round One. Johnson however was not happy with his performance and vowed to comeback even better.

Anthony Johnson will be a champion one day! Mark my words!!
