John Howard secured a knockout victory over Daniel Roberts and a $50,000 bonus for his efforts at UFC on Versus 1 tonight but that didn't mean his would be opponent, Anthony Johnson wasn't watching.
Johnson and Howard were scheduled to meet up in a grudge match of sorts at Sundays Versus debut but a knee injury suffered in training forced Johnson out of the bout. The two had shared words in the past and were looking to settle things in the Octagon.
Following Howards win, Johnson posted the following message to him on his Facebook account:
“Congrats on your win John Howard but if you fight me like that you won't survive. Better work on that stand up buddy.”
It's likely only a matter of time before these two explosive welterweights find themselves inside the UFC cage.
