Good news, fight fans.
NBCSports.com brought word of the pending match-up a short time ago.

You're not likely to hear many complaints.
Demetrious Johnson seemingly came from out of nowhere to quickly establish himself as a legitimate threat to the bantamweight throne.
Can the speedy "Mighty Mouse" culminate his incredible rise to the top by knocking off "The Dominator" and become a UFC champion in just his third fight inside the Octagon?
UFC on Versus 6 was recently revealed by the promotion as a third event that will take place in the month of October, adding to an already stacked month that will include UFC 136: "Edgar vs. Maynard 3" on Oct. 8 and UFC 137: "St. Pierre vs. Diaz" on Oct. 29.
Not only that but the promotion has awarded fans in the nation's capital with a title fight that will air on free TV as the main event with Cruz vs. Johnson.
