The news that Anthony "Rumble" Johnson, a two-time UFC title challenger,
had been discovered dead at the young age of 38 devastated
the MMA community on Sunday night.
The martial arts community was shocked by Johnson's passing.
The American set the standard for fighting by being gracious in both victory and defeat.
Two times, "Rumble" competed for the UFC lightweight title, but he was defeated by Daniel Cormier in both contests.
In Week 3, the Philadelphia Eagles defeated the Washington Commanders, 24-8.
The tribute from former UFC light heavyweight champion Jon Jones attracted the most attention.
Back in 2015, Jones and Johnson were scheduled to fight in the octagon. Due

What the two appeared to be about to get into was a heated argument was actually just a practical joke on Dana White.
