The tragic death of UFC alumnus Anthony ‘Rumble’ Johnson – Nicki Swift
Anthony Johnson previously shared health updates with fans on Instagram, but the updates were often vague. On September 18, 2021, he aware the following: “I really wish I could go into detail about how really sick I am…I’ve never been so afraid of anything in my life, but I’ve stayed strong with the support of friends and family.” On May 17, she shared a mail which read, “Dr. just gave me some good news… Great improvements and that health status for now is-” adding the check mark and escalation chart emoji. On June 9, Johnson posted a photo with a friend and addressed his weight loss. “Yes, I have lost a little weight due to being sick before, but don’t think for a second that I lost any energy,” he said on the caption.
Much later, just two weeks before Johnson’s death, his manager Ali Abdelaziz gave dire updates on Johnson during an interview with ESPN. “Rumble, he’s going through some health issues right now. It’s very sad,” Abdelaziz explained. “I think I want everyone to pray for him. Pray for Anthony. He’s not doing well. He’s very strong spiritually. But pray for him.” Our condolences go out to his family and friends.
