The UFC has confirmed Tony Ferguson’s next bout and it’s not against Khabib Nurmagomedov as many though might be the case.

Yes, the UFC has announced that Ferguson will throw down with Michael Johnson for a second time on March 5th. That’s the date UFC 197 will take place at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas.

Ferguson (20-3) and Johnson (16-10) fought back in 2012, and “The Menace” handed the former a unanimous decision loss. Since the defeat, however, “El Cucuy” has been on a tear, asĀ Ferguson’s won seven straight.

Johnson, however, is 5-4 since that encounter. Ferguson is currently ranked #5 at 155 and Johnson is sitting in the #7 spot.

UFC 197 will feature a lightweight bout between champion Rafael dos Anjos and Conor McGregor.
