Anthony Johnson, 38-year-old MMA fighter, died on Sunday November 13 after a long illness.

The world of octagons is in mourning. Bellator, an American MMA league, announced on Sunday the death of American fighter Anthony Johnson at the age of 38, from a long illness.

Nicknamed “Rumble”, the man who was one of the greatest figures in the UFC from 2007 to 2017, the prestigious league where the best fighters on the planet evolve, was known for his success by knockout. Hence his nickname. He had joined Bellator in 2020 and had his last fight in May 2021.

Last summer his condition was considered worrying. He himself had asked for prayers from his fans and friends on Instagram.

The fans of the first hour will remember his fights and in particular against his worst enemy Daniel Cormier.
