A lightweight matchup between Michael Johnson (12-6 MMA, 4-2 UFC) and Myles Jury (10-0 MMA, 1-0 UFC) is now official for December's UFC 155 event.

UFC officials recently confirmed the booking, which was originally reported in October.

UFC 155 takes place Dec. 29 at MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas. The main event is a heavyweight title fight rematch between champion Junior Dos Santos and ex-titleholder Cain Velasquez, which headlines the pay-per-view portion of the show.
