If we are to believe the verified twitter account of UFC lightweight fighter, Cody McKenzie, than the UFC has booked a lightweight bout for their return trip to network television and put the aforementioned McKenzie in against his former teammate, Michael Johnson.
While not officially announced by the promotion, UFC on FOX 2 is expected to go down from Chicago’s United Center on January 28.
McKenzie is in desperate need of a win after suffering back-to-back losses inside the Octagon to Vagner Rocha and Yves Edwards. Before losing in the UFC he had won 12 straight fights including 10 straight by guillotine choke.
Johnson was last seen at UFC on Versus 6 in a losing effort to Paul Sass. Prior to the recent setback he was on a respectable run which saw him go 4-1 with the lone loss by way of TUF season 12 finale loss to eventual winner Jonathan Brookins.
