Anthony Johnson discussed his decision to retire following UFC 210 Saturday night during the post-fight press conference.
Below are highlights from that interview session:
Johnson on his decision to retire: “It’s been in my mind for a while. I gave another venture my word. They’re waiting on me. I’m grateful for the journey. If I don’t like it, I can still come back. I just have to leave right now. In due time, people will know what it is.”
Johnson on wrestling Cormier: “I was trying to put him in an uncomfortable position, but I made a mistake and he capitalized on it.”
