With Pearson injured, Johnson steps in to face Guillard


Michael Johnson will get a chance to move one step closer to his goal of a title fight, stepping in to fight Melvin Guillard at the UFC, March 8th in London:

With Ross Pearson forced to withdraw from his March 8 rematch against Melvin Guillard due to a knee injury, Guillard's former Blackzilian teammate, Michael "The Menace" Johnson, will step up for the UFC Fight Night co-main event in London. 

Winner of back-to-back bouts over Joe Lauzon and Gleison Tibau, Johnson's bout with "The Young Assassin" promises to be one of the most memorable of the new year.
