Anthony Johnson: UFC 202 'made UFC 200 look like trash'

Anthony Johnson believes this past weekend's UFC 202 was miles ahead of UFC 200 off paper.

It doesn't look like Anthony Johnson's opinion of the highly anticipated UFC 200 is a positive one.

After finishing Glover Teixeira in only 13 seconds at UFC 202 this past weekend, Rumble went as far to say in his post-fight scrum that August's pay-per-view card, which he co-headlined, was leaps and bounds ahead of UFC 200 off paper.

"I mean, this was a hell of a card," the light heavyweight contender said. "Everybody -- they pumped up UFC 200 so much. I think this one right here made UFC 200 look like trash."

Johnson's devastating knockout win over Teixeira put him next in line to fight champ Daniel Cormier, who defeated him by submission last year in a vacant title fight. The rematch is not official at this time, however.

UFC 202 took place live from the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas on Aug. 20. Conor McGregor's instant classic majority decision victory over Nate Diaz headlined the card.
