Luke Thomas talks to UFC 142's Anthony Johnson about moving up to middleweight to face Vitor Belfort. Here's Luke's intro from MMA Nation: "I had the chance to speak to 'Rumble' earlier in the week about his impending middleweight debut against Vitor Belfort at UFC 142 this Saturday. What struck me immediately was how much more bright-eyed and alive he seemed at this weight versus his previous appearances at welterweight. When pressed for an explanation on why there seemed to be two completely different Anthony Johnson quietly fired back with a dry and matter of fact of response. 'Trust me,' he said, 'It helps out a lot when you can eat.'" Read the whole thing.

Anthony "Rumble" Johnson tweets about the move to 185 for his UFC 142 bout with Vitor Belfort: "Ppl question why the move to 185? 1st its a challenge, 2nd because I want to, 3rd why not? What is life without challenges and trying something new? Life would be boring then!!! 170 is Still my home."

Anthony Johnson targeting October-November return, could make his middleweight debut: "Anthony Johnson at one point weighed the same as Ricco Rodriguez, which is kind of scary. He weighed the same as Ricco Rodriguez, except he had abs," Johnson's agent, Ken Pavia, joked with MMAWeekly Radio. "He had a knee injury. He had surgery, took some time off to let it heal, it was giving him some problems, but now he's in rehab and doing rehab for his knee. "We had a UFC offer in September that we weren't able to pursue. We're entertaining the possibility of taking a fight at 185, which is something we might have done anyway even if he didn't have the knee injury because that cut is just so tough for him." "We were offered a fight at 185, a fight that we liked and before he accepted it, he said even if I do take a fight at 185, September might be pushing it. I want to get some time in the gym first... We're looking at late October, early November for him, and we're not sure if the first fight back is going to be at 70 and we're going to kill ourselves, or at 85 and just kind of kill ourselves."

Ken Pavia tells MMA Junkie that Anthony Johnson may return as a middleweight: "[Anthony Johnson] He has to maintain a very diligent cardio routine to stay in striking range of 170 (pounds). Because of his knee injury, his weight has gotten up a little bit, and we don't want to delay his comeback because of a weight issue. So we're entertaining the possibility of taking a fight at 185 (pounds)."

Anthony Johnson is not impressed with John Howard's victory: "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!" HT: Fight Hype (via mmamania) UFC on Versus: Vera vs. Jones coverage

Anthony Johnson says "I'm not dumb enough to fight John Howard injured": "It's my meniscus again. It's been torn for a year and a half now. I ain't dumb enough to fight this guy injured, especially after so much trash talking between me and him. He's a tough fighter and I guarantee his leg kick would have done more damage to my knee. That would be dumb to go in there and I'm smarter than that. I'm not ducking this guy. I promise you we're gonna fight no matter what. We will fight. Can I say when? No, but when my knee is fixed and 100 percent, oh hell yeah." Video interview at cagewriter.com (via mmamania.com) UFC on Versus: Vera vs. Jones coverage
