Multiple outlets and the UFC have confirmed a Fox Sports report that UFC on Fox 12 is getting two huge main card fights.
Josh Thomson vs. Michael Johnson was just announced. Thomson is coming off a controversial split decision loss to Benson Henderson. Johnson is coming off a decision win over Melvin Guillard, which prompted the latter’s exit from the company.
Yesterday Anthony “Rumble” Johnson, fresh off a win over Phil Davis, will take on Antônio Rogério Nogueira on the same card. Nogueira last fight at UFC 156, securing a decision win over Rashad Evans. He previously had been linked to bouts with Mauricio “Shogun” and Alexander Gustafsson, pulling out of both due to injuries.
