Public workouts are always just a “dog and pony show” designed to show the fans a glimpse of what they’re paying for. It’s akin to the practice of putting horses on display before races, or that little old Chinese lady pushing a cart of steamed shrimp dumplings around the dining room during Sunday morning dim sum service. In other words, it’s all for show.

That said, there is some value to seeing main eventers throw some leather while a crowd looks on, so here’s UFC 187 headliner Anthony “Rumble” Johnson doing just that very thing in the lobby of the MGM Grand in Las Vegas.
