Anthony Johnson: “John Howard is soft; he doesn’t belong in the UFC”

Welterweight contender Anthony Johnson was least than impressed with John Howard’s survival of submission attemps from Daniel Roberts, resulting in a KO of the night victory for “Doomsday”, in which “Rumble” quickly called “lucky”.

Johnson, speaking via Fight Hype, said:

“Howard ain’t got no stand-up at all. He’s lucky Roberts wasn’t stronger or he probably would have gotten submitted. Howard is soft; he doesn’t belong in the UFC. I will be glad to show him this if he’s my next opponent. But congratulations on your win. If you fight me like that, you won’t survive. You better work on that stand-up buddy!”
