Two "The Ultimate Fighter 12" castmates have agreed to meet at the UFC's sophomore effort on network television.
According a tweet sent out by lightweight prospect Cody McKenzie (12-2), he and fellow lightweight Michael Johnson (9-6) are scheduled to clash at UFC on Fox 2. Promotion officials have yet to confirm the match-up.
McKenzie is most well-known for his penchant for guillotine chokes. Following his first professional fight, the 23-year-old ripped through an absurd streak of eleven straight finishes by guillotine -- including his UFC debut against Aaron Wilkinson -- before falling into two consecutive rear-naked chokes against Yves Edwards and Vagner Rocha.
Likewise, Johnson, a 25-year-old knockout artist from Missouri, has discovered his own struggles inside the Octagon. Following the conclusion of the show, "The Menace" sandwiched a TKO victory over Eddie Faaloloto between tough losses to TUF 12 winner Jonathan Brookins and British submission ace Paul Sass.
UFC on Fox 2 is slated for January 28, 2012 at the United Center in Chicago, Illinois. Young contender Phil Davis challenges former UFC light heavyweight champion Rashad Evans in the night's main event.
