Cody McKenzie will not get the chance to face Michael Johnson at UFC on FOX 2 as an injury has knocked the former Ultimate Fighter competitor out of action.
In McKenzie’s place will be a multi-time All American wrestler as Shane Roller has accepted the bout. Roller-Johnson will be part of the undercard for the January 28 show with the bout being televised by FUEL TV.
Roller (10-5) is just 1-2 in the UFC since his time in WEC where he racked up a 6-2 record including wins over Danny Castillo, Anthony Njokuani, and Jamie Varner. Comparably, Johnson (9-6) shares the exact same record inside the Octagon. His last fight came in October where he was submitted by crafty Brit Paul Sass. With their 1-2 marks, this is likely a critical match for both men if hoping to remain on the UFC roster.
