It has quite recently come to the world’s attention that retired fan favourite MMA fighter and the former UFC light heavyweight title contender, Anthony Johnson has had a restraining order issued against him. According to media reports a woman involved in a ‘casual relationship’ with him has got a restraining order against him.
The woman’s attorney Robyn Barrett told MMA Junkie that his client filed for an injunction because of “an immediate present danger of dating violence”. In turn Johnson’s attorney, Scott B. Saul had this to state regarding the case:
He’s saying I’m going to go get my gun, and her interpretation was (the message was) aimed at her. His position was somebody on social media was stalking him, and he was saying it in reference to the person bothering him and not her. That’s his position, and also I believe he may have posted a picture of her performing something intimate on him. But it all had to do with social media postings.
There were no findings of fact, nobody testified, and there was no ruling.
