DEERFIELD BEACH, Fla. – Henri Hooft doesn’t expect Anthony Johnson to have skipped a beat in his return. After more than four years away from the sport, Johnson (22-6 MMA, 0-0 BMMA) will lace up the gloves in a new organization when he takes on Jose Augusto in a quarterfinal tournament bout at Bellator 258 on Saturday at Mohegan Sun Arena in Uncasville, Conn. Johnson announced his retirement from MMA after failing to capture the light heavyweight title for a second time against Daniel Cormier at UFC 210 in 2017. Prior to losing to Cormier in the rematch, Johnson starched Jimi Manuwa, current Bellator heavyweight champ Ryan Bader and upcoming UFC light heavyweight title challenger Glover Teixeira.
