Anthony Johnson out of UFC on FOX 20 bout against Glover Teixeira

<p dir="ltr">According to a <a href="http://www.mmafighting.com/2016/6/18/11969086/anthony-johnson-out-of-ufc-no-fox-20-clash-with-glover-teixeira">report released by MMAFighting.com</a>, Anthony Johnson will not be fighting at UFC on FOX 20.</p> <p dir="ltr">Johnson (21-5), who is currently #2 on the UFC&rsquo;s official light-heavyweight rankings, was originally scheduled to face #3 ranked Glover Teixeira in the co-main event of UFC on FOX 20 in Chicago but has withdrawn from the bout for undisclosed reasons. The former title challenger is 5-1 as a UFC light-heavyweight with all but one of his five wins coming by way of knockout. His most recent bout was a sub 90-second knockout victory over Ryan Bader in January.</p> <p dir="ltr">Teixeira (25-4) is on a three-fight win streak and is coming off a first-round knockout win against Rashad Evans in the main event of UFC on FOX 19. In his post-fight interview, Teixeira called out Anthony Johnson with the hopes that a win over him would cement his case for a title shot but, now that the fight is off, he said he is willing to face anyone to stay on the card.</p> <p dir="ltr">&quot;I&rsquo;d rather stay on the card,&quot; <a href="http://www.mmafighting.com/2016/6/18/11970478/glover-teixeira-wants-to-fight-at-ufc-on-fox-20-bring-anyone">Teixeira told MMA Fighting</a>. &quot;I&rsquo;m prepared, and I spent a lot of money bringing guys from Brazil to help me. For sure, I&rsquo;d like to stay on the card.</p> <p dir="ltr">&quot;Ed (Soares) is talking to Joe Silva. I don&rsquo;t care. Anyone. I&rsquo;m not the type of fighter to call someone out. I challenged Anthony Johnson because he was going to wait, and he&rsquo;s the No. 1 contender. That fight made a lot of sense to me because a win would get me next to a title shot. I&rsquo;d be the next in line. I don&rsquo;t have much choice now. Bring anyone.&quot;</p>
