A lightweight matchup between The Ultimate Fighter 12 teammates Michael Johnson and Cody McKenzie is set for the UFC on Fox 2 fight card on January 28 in Chicago, McKenzie announced Friday.
Johnson (9-6) suffered a first-round submission to Paul Sass in October after knocking out Eddie Faaloloto for his UFC win in June to rebound from losing to Jonathan Brookins in the finals of TUF 12. McKenzie (12-2) has dropped back-to-back submissions to Yves Edwards and Vagner Rocha after choking out fellow castmember Aaron Wilkinson in his Octagon debut in December.
UFC on FOX 2 is headlined by light heavyweight contenders Rashad Evans and Phil Davis and also includes Demetrious Johnson vs. Eddie Wineland, Paul Sass vs. Evan Dunham, and Jon Olav Einemo vs. Mike Russow.
