Anthony Johnson's recent career has been riddled with weight problems.

More specifically, Johnson's inability to make weight—at both 170 and 185 pounds—led to his dismissal from the UFC. After another recently missed weigh-in, Johnson finally made the decision to move up to light heavyweight.

Bleacher Report's Jeremy Botter caught up with Johnson during UFC 148 fight week in Las Vegas to discuss his weight issues, whether or not he thinks his extreme weight cuts may have damaged his body, his future in the sport and much more.

Check out the interview above.
