Heavyweights collide on FOX

A heavyweight bout between Lavar Johnson and Brendan Schaub is official for “UFC on FOX 5” this December.

UFC officials announced the match up today.

“UFC on FOX 5” takes place on December 8 and is undoubtedly the most stacked free card in the promotion’s history.

The event will be headlined by a ligthweight title fight between Benson Henderson and Nate Diaz, while a co-main event between Alexander Gustafsson and Mauricio “Shogun” Rua is also set.

Schaub last competed at against Ben Rothwell, losing to the IFL veteran via knockout. Prior to that fight, he was defeated by Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira.

Meanwhile, Johnson was on a tear before being stopped by Stefan Struve earlier this summer. He debuted in the UFC with a knockout victory over Joey Beltran at “UFC on FOX 2,” following that win up with a knockout win over Pat Barry.
