Johnson vs. Faaloloto official for June event
UFC officials announced the match up on Monday.
Johnson, who came very close to earning the title of “The Ultimate Fighter,” last competed at “The Ultimate Fighter: Team GSP vs. Team Koscheck Finale,” losing to Jonathan Brookins via unanimous decision. Prior to the loss, he earned three consecutive victories, two of which came by knockout.
Still very new to the sport, Faaloloto looks to rebound from a technical knockout loss to Anthony Njokuani at WEC 52. The loss, the first of his career, snapped a two-fight winning streak short. This bout will be his debut in the UFC.
“UFC on Versus 4” is slotted for Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania this June, though the card is still being put together. A heavyweight bout between Pat Barry and Cheick Kongo is the most notable contest as of this point in time
