Anthony Johnson raised some eyebrows when he expressed interest in possibly moving up to the land of the heavyweights. Even more surprising was Johnson expressing interest in facing former UFC heavyweight champ, Andrei Arlovski (h/t Damon Martin, MMA Weekly).
Both men competed on the World Series of Fighting 1 event with both picking up victories. Johnson has competed as low as welterweight previously in his career but seems to have found a home at light heavyweight.
However, that doesn't mean Johnson isn't open to opportunities outside the 205-pound division.
A fight with Arlovski and Johnson would no doubt provide fireworks and would be a great fight for the WSOF to follow up the momentum gained by their first event.
Arlovski has always competed at heavyweight, but would he have the advantage over "Rumble" if the two were to meet one another?
