The Strikeforce heavyweights are coming.

Less than one week after UFC president Dana White announced that Strikeforce would no longer be promoting heavyweight contests, UFC executives today announced Lavar Johnson (15-5 MMA, 0-0 UFC) has been imported to the UFC and will meet Joey Beltran (13-6 MMA, 3-2 UFC).

The two heavyweights will clash at UFC on FOX 2, which takes place Jan. 28 at Chicago's United Center.

The night's main card airs on FOX, but Beltran vs. Johnson is expected to take place on the evening's preliminary card.

Should be a good brawl. Beltran should get the win here, if he was a little better on the ground, he would be able to put it away wit a sub, since pretty much all of Johnson's losses came by submissions, instead I see a late KO or a decision win.

I LIKE THIS
I only caught Lavars two losses in Strikeforce. He has painfully awful submission defense & ground game. Luckily for him submission isn't in The Mexicutionars vocabulary & this should become a "throw bombs until someone drops" match cant wait!

Wow! for Johnson it won't be much fun being welcomed into the UFC by the self proclaimed 'Mexicutionar'.

This is going to be fun as hell. I think Beltran will finish him. Joey can take shots better than Johnson and he hits pretty damn hard. Beltran 1st round tko.

I think Beltran is going to mess him up.

Nice. I'll definitely be pulling for Joey in this one. I'll be expecting a highlight reel KO.
