On the eve of the biggest fight of his career, Anthony (Rumble) Johnsons only concern is the chill in the air in Stockholm. Evan Engram Giants Jersey .The Florida-based light-heavyweight doesnt much like the cold. But stepping into a cage with six-foot-five Swede Alexander (The Mauler) Gustafsson doesnt faze him one bit.No point in being like all high-strung and stiff like that, said a relaxed Johnson. That gets you nowhere. Thats wasted energy.The two fighters meet Saturday on a televised UFC card at the 30,000-plus Tele2 Arena with a title shot on the line.Gustafsson (16-2) is ranked No. 1 among 205-pound contenders and working his way to a rematch with champion Jon (Bones) Jones, whom he pushed for five gruelling rounds in Toronto before losing a close five-round decision at UFC 165 in September 2013.Johnson (18-4) is ranked third among light-heavyweights, a well-rounded and hard-hitting fighter now campaigning in his third weight class.The UFC is billing the card as just its second major stadium event and the first in Europe.

Im going to solve the problem.Johnson, who walks around these days at 230 to 235 pounds, had trouble making weight in the past. He would cut from 210 pounds to 170 to make welterweight.Still he has no regrets about those past struggles.Trying to make 170 was tough, he said, not surprisingly. But if I hadnt fought at 170 people might not know who I am right now if I hadnt made that sacrifice and did the things I did at 170.It was crazy, he said of the weight cut. I dont recommend that for anybody.Johnson, 30, had been punishing his body for a while. A former junior college wrestling champion, he competed at 174 and 184 pounds while at Lassen Community College in California.Thanks to a knee issue, the 28-year-old Gustafsson has spent just four minutes 18 seconds in the cage since meeting Jones in Toronto.
