UFC's Anthony Johnson Says The Eye Poke From Kevin Burns Was Maturation Turning Point

UFC welterweight contender Anthony Johnson spoke to the media yesterday at the UFC on Versus 6 workouts. MMA Nation spoke to Johnson about, of course, the state of his weight cut, if the process of losing weight has become easier, why the eye poke to Kevin Burns that nearly derailed his career was a turning point in his maturity as a fighter, how he got the acting role in 'Warrior' from Tapout's 'Mask' and why Charlie Brenneman will not be able to defeat him without securing the takedown.
