Anthony “Rumble” Johnson announces UFC return

"T Mobile Arena..."

It seems that two-time light heavyweight title contender Anthony “Rumble” Johnson may be ready for a return to the UFC, and on one of the biggest stages possible.

It’s been almost three years since fans last saw Johnson fight in the octagon. That occurred at UFC 210, which saw him challenge Daniel Cormier for the light heavyweight title for the second time. Once again, though, Johnson found himself on the wrong end of a submission loss, and he retired from MMA shortly after. However, “Rumble” has opened up for a UFC return on several occasions since then, and it seems that Johnson might have found an event to return at.

In a recent Twitter post, Johnson seemingly announced his return, which will supposedly occur at UFC 248, which goes down at the T Mobile Arena in Las Vegas on March seventh.

As of now, initial reports claim that the event will be headlined by a middleweight title fight between champ Israel Adesanya and former title contender Yoel Romero.

The return of “Rumble”

After his first return to the UFC in 2014, Johnson went on a tear through the light heavyweight division. A three fight winning streak led to his first title shot against then champion Cormier. That was, however, a fight that the champ won via submission. “Rumble” would then win an additional three fights, all via KO, to earn his second shot at the title. Once more it ended in a submission loss for Johnson.

Since then, he has spoken about a potential heavyweight return to the UFC. While the promotion has not yet announced anything in regards to a Johnson comeback, both the heavyweight and light heavyweight divisions would certainly do well to have “Rumble” return.
