Fresh off his knockout of Danny Castillo at UFC on FX 5, Michael Johnson will fight for a 4th time in 2012 when he faces Ultimate Fighter veteran Myles Jury at UFC 155.

Sources close to the fight confirmed the bout to MMAWeekly.com on Wednesday. ESPN.com first reported the match-up via Twitter.

Michael Johnson has had a very successful 2012 campaign thus far going 3-0 with wins over Shane Roller, Tony Ferguson and the afore mentioned knockout over Danny Castillo.

Now the Blackzilian fighter will try to move to 4-0 facing a fellow TUF veteran in December.

Myles Jury is a rare case of a fighter that competed on the Ultimate Fighter twice. His first run was derailed after an injury pushed him off the show. He returned for the 15th installment of the reality show during the Ultimate Fighter Live earlier this year on FX.

Following the reality show, Jury dispatched of former housemate Chris Saunders by submission in the first round, and now looks to pick up a second win in the UFC in December.

The two lightweights will meet at UFC 155, although their placement on the card has not been determined yet.
