Anthony Johnson vs. John Howard set for UFC on VERSUS

A welterweight showdown between Anthony Johnson and John Howard is official for “UFC on Versus: Vera vs. Jones“.

UFC onVersus will be the first live UFC event to air on the VERSUS network, and is set for March 21 from the Odeum Arena in Broomfield, Colorado.

Johnson will be looking to bounce back from his second round submission defeat at the hands of Josh Koscheck following a three fight win streak in the Octagon, while Howard has gone undefeated since his arrival in the UFC with wins over the likes of Chris Wilson, Tamdan McCrory and most recently, Dennis Hallman.

Other bouts that have been made official for the card include the headlining match-up between Jon Jones and Brandon Vera at light heavyweight, along with Eliot Marshall vs. Vladimir Matyushenko, also at 205 pounds.

  • Lethal Liquid says:

    his a nice card. These matchups are more intriguing than Ufc 109. Rumble really needs an impressive showing or it is truly time to consider a move up to middleweight

    Ok fuck this! Fucking Versus network is gay and isnt on Direct tv anymore because they can’t agree on a contract. So I can’t see what is turning into the best Fightnight ever.

    We all know Johnsons weakness now lies in his wrestling/take down defense/Jiu-Jitsu. Being smashed by Koscheck and two of his three losses coming to submissions will only make his opponents more aware of his weaknesses. Time to evolve or fall. Anthony Johnsons choice and we will be there to watch his evolution.

    Good call PlagueAngel-

    Rumble is in a transition period let’s see how he reacts and if indeed he does evolve.

    Seems lately theres a few fighters in this situation.

    ummmm……I dont know what fight you were watching, but until the poke in the eye that caught Kos a break AJ was winning that fight. Even then up until Kos poked AJ in the eye it was even. And lastly, the second or third best wrestler in mma (Kos) having the ability to take you down doesn’t mean your take down defense sucks. AJ is fine, he just needs to move to MW because his frame is to big for WW.
