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.

Agreed.i like Johnson... he seems to be improving every fight, and is pretty well rounded and uses a good gameplan.Guillard is a freak, but you never know who's gonna show up...
