Shane Roller has stepped in for an injured Cody McKenzie and will meet Michael Johnson in a lightweight matchup on the preliminary card of UFC on Fox 2 on January 28 in Chicago, according to MMAjunkie.
Roller (10-5) is in need of a win after back-to-back losses to Melvin Guillard and TJ Grant, which followed a “Knockout of the Night” against Thiago Tavares in his UFC debut. Johnson (9-6), The Ultimate Fighter 12 runner-up, stopped Edward Faaloloto in June for his first UFC win, but fell to Paul Sass in October.
UFC on Fox 2 is headlined by light heavyweight contenders Rashad Evans and Phil Davis and also features top middleweights Chael Sonnen vs. Mark Munoz and Michael Bisping vs. Demian Maia
