Anthony Johnson has eyeball surgery

An initial inspection by the post-fight doctors had Anthony Johnson suffering from a conjunctival laceration. But upon further inspection from a proper eye specialist, the damage was actually worse:

“I had surgery.” he said. “It was pretty intense for me.”

“My retina was damaged, possibly detached, and the laceration was pretty long. It was basically from one end of my eye to the other. They did laser surgery that took about two hours, put some stitches on it basically.”

That’s some serious shit right there. The article goes on to say that while Johnson bears no ill will towards Burns, he feels that Burns shouldn’t be allowed to fight until he gets the issue with his hand fixed. For those of you who didn’t catch the fight, Burns blamed a hand injury that keeps him from throwing a closed fist as the reason he kept sticking fingers all up in Anthony’s shit.
