NSAC Rejects Anthony Johnson Appeal On July TKO Loss

0

Nevada State Athletic Commission Executive Director Keith Kizer has confirmed to MMAFrenzy.com that they had rejected the appeal that was put in for Anthony Johnson due to a July TKO loss to Kevin Burns.

Burns poked Johnson in the eye, basically touching the back of his skull, and that led to Johnson being unable to see and he was stopped seconds later.

“Based on advice from the Nevada Attorney General’s office, the appeal was rejected due to lack of remedy,” Kizer revealed to MMAFrenzy.com.

Attempts to contact Johnson were not immediately returned.
