4

There has been a lot of backlash following the Anthony “Rumble” Johnson Facebook rant against the “ugly girl” at a gym where he was involved in a big incident.

Although he deleted his Facebook post, several places picked up on the post before it was gone, so the news spread like wildfire, particularly because of Rumble’s history with domestic violence accusations.

Soon after the news spread, Johnson “I”m man enough to admit when I’m wrong and yesterday I was absolutely wrong,” Johnson wrote on Facebook.

Read Johnson’s complete apology below.

The UFC has acknowledged the situation as well, as they released the following statement:

“UFC is aware of the situation involving Anthony Johnson. We take these matters seriously and have commenced a formal investigation by a third-party law firm. We will act accordingly once we gather more information.”
