For five years Jones has crushed his opponents and heard the lamentation of their women like nothing in UFC history, with a lone exception. Alexander Gustafsson very nearly beat "Bones."</p>
And then Johnson crushed "The Mauler." That Johnson used to fight at welterweight, and was released by the UFC for missing weight, makes the story all the more remarkable.
The card also features:
UFC middleweight champion Chris Weidman vs Vitor Belfort
Donald Cerrone vs Khabib Nurmagomedov
Travis Browne vs Andrei Arlovski
Joseph Benavidez vs John Moraga
In short, UFC is back.
White was equally effusive about Johnson.
"What he's doing with his power is crazy," White said. "He moved up two divisions and is knocking out legit 205-pounders. This isn't like boxing, where if you move up two divisions you're going up six or eight pounds. He's fighting way bigger guys than he used to and his power is incredible."
Wednesday the UFC announced a massive plan for comprehensive, random, out of competition drug testing. And they announced this phenomenal card. It feels like morning in MMA.
