Anthony “Rumble” Johnson, a former UFC light heavyweight contender who is now a Bellator fighter, was forced to pull out of his battle against Vadim Nemkov due to illness a year ago, and he has not competed in a fight since then. Johnson is currently signed with Bellator.
“I wish I could go into specifics about how ill I am. Please know that I need as many prayers as you can send my way, and I hope to see you again in 2022. “I’ve never been this frightened of anything in my life, but because of the support of my friends and family, I’ve been able to stay strong,” Johnson wrote in September last year.
In a recent interview with ESPN’s Brett Okamoto, Johnson’s manager Ali Abdelaziz provides an update on the fighter’s health difficulties. Johnson has been battling several health issues in recent years.
“Rumble, he’s dealing with some health issues at the moment. “It’s a terrible shame,” Abdelaziz remarked. “I believe, and I want everyone to pray for him,” she said. Keep Anthony in your prayers. It is not going as planned. On a spiritual level, he possesses a lot of strength. But say some prayers for him.
