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.
Can't wait to see The Menace back in the cage, his striking is just a joy to watch. He has to be careful against a dangerouns finisher in Jury though.
