Thomson vs. Johnson booked for UFC on FOX in July

 

After his most recent loss in the UFC, lightweight Josh Thomson had considered retirement.  Looks like he changed his mind and will fight in July:

Former Strikeforce lightweight champion Josh Thomson, coming off a split decision loss to Benson Henderson in January, is looking to climb back into title contention.

That journey begins on July 26 when he meets No. 10-ranked lightweight Michael Johnson, who has won his last three fights inside the Octagon.

Good test for Johnson! I think this guy is improving with every fight, would not be surprised if he takes this. Good fucking fight.

Josh is too slow too handle Johnson. I can see MJ stuffing his takedown attempts and forcing Thomson to stand with him. Johnson will out box him for sure. MJ by UD.

Not sure I agree at all. Josh lost a split to bendo and Gil in the last couple years. Johnson has looked good and mma math doesn't work, but if jury can beat him josh can do it for sure

Michael Johnson's TDD is very good. I'm betting on him stuffing a few shots, leading Josh to box with him.I definitely see this ending in a TKO victory much like the Diaz bout.

Johnson sure wont be complaining about lack of engagement. The Punk will deliver an MMA 101.
