View Full Version : Anthony Johnson: ĎI truly believe Iím nowhere near my potentialí
10-17-2009, 01:17 AM
The only pressure I feel, honestly, is the pressure to make the weight. Once Iím on weight, I know everything else will take care of itself. Iím hard on myself and I get upset when I make a mistake, but the good thing is that I can see the progress Iíve made and I truly believe Iím nowhere near my potential.

AJ has a shit load of upside, but I'm not sure how long he will be able to fight at 170, the guy walks at 220. Making weight has to be a bitch for him.
I'd like to see how he does once he steps up against a top 10 guy which should be very soon should he have a big win in his next fight.

I agree Jax, if he looks the same as before, it's time for him to move up in comp.

Tank is back, sweet av Jax. I would have liked to see Nate/Hendo fight but oh well.

Two words AJ, two words "GREG JACKSON". Then you'll know what you really can be!
Arlovski just went to Greg Jackson which might be the best thing for his career. AA has a great ground game but doesn't use it and just wants to box. Unfortunatly he keeps getting caught and lights out. He should do what GSP did and refine his game by going for takedowns and changing things up, he has good subs but never uses them.
I would like to see AA make a good comeback and if he trains with team Jackson I think we might see a new Arlovski.

I was pumped to hear of AA going to Jackson. After Stevenson taking a 30 trial there and then beating a#* on return, I'd love to see AA spend a good 6 months working there before trying to fight again. He's got great ground game but he's fallen to a one dimensional fighter like you said and Greg will be able to bring that out in him.

that's cool, that one guy here with the AA av will love to hear this. Has anybody ever gone to Jackson and come back worse?? Is Joe Stevenson still there, if not, Fisher will kill him. Joe + Jackson = a good fight with Fisher.
