Ultimate Fighter (TUF) 13 winner Anthony Ferguson looks to continue his undefeated run through the UFC lightweight division when he makes a trip to the "Garden State" later this year to battle fellow TUF guy Michael Johnson at the UFC on FOX 3 event booked for May 5, 2012, from the IZOD Center in East Rutherford.
Ferguson (13-3) graduated at the top of his TUF class by beating the brakes off fellow finalist Ramsey Nijem. That set up a jaw-breaking win over Aaron Riley followed by a unanimous decision victory over the venerable YYves Edwards.
Can "El Cucuy" scare up another "W" in Dirty Jersey?
Standing in his way will be Johnson (10-6), who's looking to string together consecutive wins for the first time in over two years.
"The Menace" failed to capture the TUF crown after a unanimous decision loss to Jonathan Brookins in the 2010 live finale. He's since sandwiched a loss to Paul Sass between wins over Edward Faaloloto and Shane Roller.
Is this going to be his breakout fight?
UFC on FOX 3 will be headlined by a lightweight fight featuring Jim Miller vs. Nate Diaz. The victor is widely-expected to move on to face the winner of Frankie Edgar vs. Ben Henderson, who rematch later this year.
