Cody McKenzie: I'm fighting Michael Johnson at UFC on FOX 2 on Jan. 28 in Chicago

There's a battle of TUF guys brewing for the UFC on FOX 2 event, pitting Ultimate Fighter (TUF) 12 alumni Cody McKenzie and Michael Johnson in a 155-pound scrap for the United Center on Jan. 28, 2012, in Chicago, Illinois.

That's according to McKenzie, who tweeted the possible match-up earlier today.

After making his UFC debut with a submission win over Aaron Wilkinson, the "AK Kid" (12-2) dropped back-to-back fights to Yves Edwards and Vagner Rocha, both by way of rear-naked choke.

The master of the McKenzie-tine is likely in a do-or-die situation from a contractual standpoint, as three straight losses never bodes well for up-and-coming fighters.

Will Johnson send him to the unemployment line? Or fall victim to his patented choke?

Like McKenzie, "The Menace" is 1-2 inside the Octagon, wrapping a pair of losses to Jonathan Brookins and Paul Sass around a UFC on Versus 4 stoppage over Edward Faaloloto.

And also like McKenzie, the Jan. 28 fight could be for all the marbles.

UFC on FOX 2 is expected to be headlined by a 205-pound showdown pitting former light heavyweight champion "Suga" Rashad Evans against "Wonderful" undefeated contender Phil Davis.
