Following a loss to Daniel Cormiér, Anthony “Rumble” Johnson made a shocking announcement. He has retired from combat sports.
Johnson leaves following UFC 210 in Buffalo, N.Y. He finishes his career with a 22-6 record.
He was 13-6 within the UFC. In his final fight, it ended at 3:37 in the second round with a rear-naked choke submission. Cormiér retained his light heavyweight belt with the win.
Johnson is the latest fighter to retire from UFC following a loss. In November 2016, Meisha Tate announced she was retiring.
Prior to this loss, he was on a three-fight win streak. Cormiér was also the last fighter to beat Johnson on May 23, 2015, which was also by a rear-naked choke submission.
The last fight, not involving Cormier, with a loss was to Vitor Belfort. He also defeated “Rumble” with a rear-naked choke submission on January 14, 2012.
Josh Koscheck, Kevin Burns and Rich Clementi also defeated Johnson in his career since Sept. 2007.
