Matt Brown has agreed to take on fellow welterweight Anthony Johnson on the main card of The Ultimate Fighter 9 Finale, which takes place on June 20th in Las Vegas.
MMAFrenzy.com learned of the matchup on Wednesday.
Johnson (7-2), who was to meet John Howard at the event before he backed out of the fight, is coming off of back-to-back victories over Kevin Burns and Luigi Fioravanti, via third-round knockout and first-round TKO respectively, and has won four of his six UFC fights.
Brown (9-7), a cast member on The Ultimate Fighter 7, advanced to the quarterfinals of the reality series with wins over Josh Hall and Jeremy May before falling to eventual winner Amir Sadollah. “The Immortal” defeated Matt Arroyo at The Ultimate Fighter 7 Finale, but suffered a split decision loss to Dong Hyun Kim last September. He’s since rebounded with back-to-back victories over Ryan Thomas and Pete Sell.
