    According to TMZ Anthony ‘Rumble’ Johnson has reached a plea deal with prosecutors in Palm Beach County regarding a misdemeanour domestic battery charge. The charge stems from when Johnson was arrested on May 6th after his girlfriend told police that he picked her up against her will.

    A probable cause affidavit stated that Johnson admitted to an arresting officer that he did pick up his girlfriend and moved her to another room of her apartment during an argument. That affidavit recorded the girlfriend as saying she was scared of Johnson during the ordeal, due to his size and “martial…

    Wow, I loved him as a fighter but he seems like a total piece of shit;

    From article "This is not Johnson’s first time being on the wrong side of the law. He is currently facing a charge of dating violence (in an unrelated case) and is also the subject of a restraining order in Broward County, FL.

    In 2014, Johnson was subject of another restraining order from a woman who accused him of striking her. In 2009 Johnson was charged with domestic violence, battery, death threats, and destroying a phone to prevent the reporting of a crime. He pleaded no contest to those charges and was sentenced to three years probation, community service and ordered to attend domestic violence counseling."

    What is it about these women that makes them want to anger this gentle giant so badly that he has to attack them?

    I think Anthony Johnson is a textbook example of most hardcore fans completely turning a blind eye to all the domestic violence accusations, simply because they want to like the guy. He's great in the ring, huge KO power, almost always exciting to watch, even in a loss. Furthemore, he has a great comeback story. After humiliating himself out of the UFC with numerous weight misses, he goes up in weight and thrives, and proves everyone wrong, and not only earns his way back to the UFC, but makes it to a world title fight. Plus he's humble in interviews and to his opponents. So he comes off really likable, and because he's never actually gone to prison for his assault charges and fans don't want it to be true, they just pretend it's not real.

    Unfortunately, this case isn't a one-time thing though. He's had at least three different girlfriends accuse him of this shit. In the end he's kind of a shitty human being who should be count his blessings he's not in jail, and I'd hope the UFC wouldn't re-hire him for the comeback he says he wants to make. They probably will though, because the UFC will book just about anything if they think it can make them money in the short term these days.

    I thought maybe it was roids that made him rage since he stopped fighting, but apparently he has had issues for like the last decade... guess he’s a POS

    Why is there so much surprise on this thread? He has been beating women (as far as we know about it) for YEARS.....

    And are you guys really shocked that a complete low-life piece of dog shit like Dana White wouldn't care about fighters raping and beating women?

    I am about as surprised by any of this as I am surprised when a fighter gets popped for roids.........

    he might be an asshole irl

    but picking up a raging woman and moving her to another room is so mild it shouldnt even be considered assault
