Rumble's Arduous Road To Top

BOCA RATON, Fla. -- One thing we know for sure about UFC light heavyweight Anthony Johnson: He doesn't always say much.

Those who know him will tell you: this has always been the case. It's not that Johnson is boring. In February, he orchestrated a prank on UFC president Dana White during a Los Angeles news conference by faking a brawl with now-former champion Jon Jones.

He's just quiet.

Michael Johnson (no relation to Anthony Johnson), a UFC lightweight who lived with Anthony for one year in 2011, calls "Rumble" the "the silent, bodyguard type."
