Lightweight Michael Johnson has been on a tear as of late, stringing together a trio of consecutive wins over the likes of Tony Ferguson, Shane Roller, and most recently Danny Castillo. In his next bout, “The Menace” will have a chance to add to his momentum by taking out an opponent who has yet to taste defeat in a professional bout – Myles Jury.
Officials recently announced the two are set to scrap on the preliminary portion of UFC 155. The December 29 show is headlined by a heavyweight title-fight between champ Junior dos Santos and former divisional king Cain Velasquez.
Johnson holds an overall record of 12-6 but is 4-1 since falling to Jonathan Brookins at the Ultimate Fighter 12 Finale.
Comparably, Jury is 10-0 thus far in his career and picked up a submission in his UFC debut this past June. All of his wins have involved some form of finish.
