An interesting heavyweight contest is expected to be announced for UFC 154 soon, as Brendan Schaub and Lavar Johnson are on tap to square off.
Schaub, a finalist on The Ultimate Fighter, has suffered two consecutive defeats since winning four fights inside the Octagon. He sports a career record of 8-3.
Johnson (17-6) recently dropped his first UFC fight, falling by submission to Stefan Struve. The former Strikeforce competitor had won his first two UFC bouts.
Schaub said the fight was proposed to him by UFC matchmaker Joe Silva while appearing on MMA Junkie’s Radio show recently.
UFC 154 takes place November 17 from Montreal’s Bell Centre. Some rumored bouts for the show include UFC welterweight champion Georges St-Pierre against interim UFC welterweight champion Carlos Condit, and a No. 1 contender match in the division between Johny Hendricks and Martin Kampmann.
