UFC on Fox 2 Adds Beltran vs. Johnson; Menjivar vs. Albert Set for UFC on Fuel 1

Joey BeltranJoey Beltran will welcome Strikeforce heavyweight Lavar Johnson to the Octagon at UFC on FX 2 on January 28 in Chicago, while a bantamweight bout between Ivan Menjivar and TUF 14’s John Albert is set for UFC on Fuel TV 1 on February 15 in Omaha, Nebraska, the UFC announced Tuesday.

Beltran and Johnson will likely be fighting for their UFC futures, as Beltran (13-6) has lost 3 of his last 4 after being knocked out by newcomer Stipe Miocic in October, while Johnson (15-5) is coming off back-to-back Strikeforce losses that followed a three-fight win streak after he recovered from a 2009 shooting.

Menjivar (23-8) is on the rise after winning both of his UFC bouts over Charlie Valencia and Nick Pace, while Albert (7-1) knocked out fellow castmember Dustin Pague in just 69-seconds at The Ultimate Fighter 14 Finale earlier this month.
