These excerpts from Johnsonís corner tell the tale. Apparently, the fighterís retirement plans werenít the only surprise of the night.

Round 1
Voice: Take your time. Nice. Take your time. Donít take him down.

Hooft: Donít wrestle him.

Voice: If youíre going to go, go single.

Hooft: You donít have to wrestle him, AJ. Just relax.

Voice: Donít wrestle him.

Hooft: Get out of there. Get out of there.

Grappling coach Neil Melanson: OK, stud. Now, letís get your hands hot.

Voice: Why is he wrestling him?

Hooft: This is stupid.

Voice: Why is he wrestling him?

Hooft: (Expletive) it, man. Just get off the cage.

Voice: Get out of there.

Voice: Why isnít he listening?

(Johnson and Cormier are broken up by referee John McCarthy, and Johnson lands kicks.)

Voice: Heís tired already, DC. He doesnít need to do this.

Voice: Why isnít he listening?

Hooft: I donít know why heís doing that. We have no (expletive) eyes.

Break between Round 1 and Round 2
Hooft: Can you tell me why youíre wrestling? Now, youíre not going to wrestle. You take your distance. Stay away, two steps away. Why are you so worried about everything? The kicks and the knees are really good, but no kicks. Whereís your hands?

Voice: Youíre doing great. Donít (expletive) wrestle him.

Hooft: If you stand your distance, itís an easy game. Why make it difficult?

Round 2
Hooft: Movement. Athletic. Movement. Thatís it. Take your distance.

(Johnson reverses against the cage and goes for another takedown)

Hooft: You need distance.

Hooft: Iím not saying nothing.

(Cormier has Johnson on the mat and is setting up a choke)

Hooft: Itís going the same as last time.

(Johnson submits to Cormier via rear-naked choke)

Hooft: Why, why the (expletive) does this happen every (expletive) time, man? Crazy.

After the fight, Johnson surprised the crowd and retired from the sport. He sought out Hooft before he made his announcement, but Hooft was nowhere to be found.

rumble has always been like this .  has the striking skills and power to take anyone out, but neither the cardio or will power for a long fight. guy is his own worst enemy

to clinch with dc is a good plan if you wanna lose.

imagine preparing for 2-3 months and then throwing the game plan outta the window
