Anthony “Rumble” Johnson Wins Bellator Debut, Then Gets Arrested

Anthony “Rumble” Johnson was arrested on Tuesday in Connecticut on the charge of identity theft. The charges were from 2019, when someone reported their credit card stolen. The card had charges run up on it as well, mainly a plane ticket from Florida to New Jersey.

The arrest comes just a few days after Johnson won his Bellator debut in stunning fashion at Bellator 258. Rumble Johnson knocked out Jose Augusto in the second round on Saturday and was on a fast track to be at the top of the light heavyweight division.

What Does The Future Hold?

Johnson’s future in Bellator remains up in the air after his recent arrest, but only time will tell what the future holds for him. I hope everything works out for Johnson because he is truly one of the most exciting fighters in the division.

Johnson was arrested and then released on a $500 bond. He is set to appear in front of a judge on June 8th. Because he spent less than $500 on a stolen credit card, the charge is only a class D felony. Still, it carries a maximum sentence of 5 years in jail and a possible fine of up to $5,000.

Johnson, a former UFC light heavyweight champion, has had a tough few years since leaving the UFC. After his loss to Daniel Cormier at UFC 210 in 2017, he didn’t fight for over four years. Seeing him win in his classic, powerful style brought back memories of his times in the UFC. I just hope that all of this is sorted out and Johnson can get back into the octagon. Anthony “Rumble” Johnson makes MMA a better sport and brings a much-needed draw to Bellator, so hopefully, we get to see him again soon.
