Michael Johnson vs. Gleison Tibau lightweight bout set for UFC 168 in Las Vegas

Quote:
The UFC's year-end card in Las Vegas continues to shape itself up with the addition of a lightweight fight to the card.

Michael Johnson (13-8 MMA, 5-4 UFC) will meet Gleison Tibau (28-9 MMA, 13-7 UFC) at UFC 168 in December. UFC officials announced the new fight booking Wednesday night.

Featuring two heavily anticipated title fights with middleweight champ Chris Weidman vs. Anderson
Silva and women's bantamweight champ Ronda
Rousey vs. Miesha Tate, UFC 168 takes place Dec. 18 at Las Vegas' MGM Grand Garden Arena.

The main card airs on pay-per-view following prelims on FOX Sports 1 and Facebook. Johnson vs. Tibau is likely to be part of the preliminary card.

Johnson got back in the win column in August with a unanimous decision upset win over hometown favorite Joe Lauzon at UFC Fight Night 26 in
Boston. That win snapped a two-fight losing skid that saw him drop a decision to Myles Jury at UFC 155 this past December and then get choked out by Reza Madai in Sweden in April. The "TUF 12" runner-up will be fighting in the UFC for the 10th time and is 0-2 in his two career fights in Las Vegas.

Tibau has won back-to-back fights and three of his past four. Less than three weeks ago, he took a split decision from Jamie Varner at UFC 164 in Milwaukee. In May, he submitted John Cholish with a second-round guillotine choke at UFC on FX 8 in his native Brazil. That win got him back on track after a split-decision loss to Evan Dunham at UFC 156. Las Vegas hasn't been very friendly to Tibau, either. The
30-year-old has just one win in six outings in Sin City.

With the addition, the latest UFC 168 card now includes:
Champ Chris Weidman vs. Anderson Silva - for middleweight title
Champ Ronda Rousey vs. Miesha Tate - for women's bantamweight title
Josh Barnett vs. Travis Browne

Michael Johnson vs. Gleison Tibau
I think Johnson takes this fight. Card is shaping up nicely

Johnson looked a million dollars in his last fight, this one will be a massive win if he can take it.

Really hope Johnson finds a way to build a nice streak now. It's a joy to watch him when he's on point.

Johnson is getting better, he will never be a top 5 guy, imo. But I think he gives most guys a good fight win or lose

If we get the exact same Johnson as we got to see in the Lauzon fight then he will win a lopsided decision. Gleison has never impressed me - he's a massive LW with potential but he just never put it together.

I think Johnson will come in looking like a beast again and put Glesion away
