There is really only one phrase that can be used to describe this past week in MMA. Rumble, young man, rumble. Anthony Johnson shocked the world on Saturday night when he obliterated Alexander Gustafsson in front of over thirty thousand Swedes.

Around this same time last year, Johnson was fighting in front of an exponentially smaller crowd against journeyman Mike Kyle. Johnson knocked out Kyle that night in what would be his last fight with World Series of Fighting. Since then, Johnson has been on a tear. He has won all three of his bouts since returning to the UFC and will now face the world’s top pound-for-pound fighter in Jon Jones.

Johnson was certainly the star of this past week, but as you know it is never a slow week in the world of MMA.
