Explosive welterweight Anthony Johnson is now slated to fight “Ultimate Fighter” season 7 competitor Matt Brown at TUF 9 Finale in June. The fight between Johnson and Brown could make the televised broadcast.
Johnson’s original “Ultimate Fighter” season 9 finale event opponent John Howard recently withdrew from the fight due to unknown reasons.
Johnson is coming off of a victory over Luigi Fioravanti at UFN 17 back in February. Johnson currently sports a 4-2 UFC record and a 7-2 overall MMA record.
Meanwhile, Matt Brown is coming off of a very dominating win over Pete Sell at UFC 96. Brown now holds a 3-1 record in the UFC with his lone loss being a controversial decision to Dong Hyun Kim at UFC 88 last September.
