Ultimate Fighting Championship officials confirmed three more bouts for this September’s upcoming UFC 151 pay-per-view event.
Not previously announced (by this site at least) is a lightweight bout between Team Alpha Male standout Danny “Last Call” Castillo (14-4) and TUF 12 Finalist Michael ‘The Menace’ Johnson (11-6).

Also confirmed, but previously reported, was a featherweight bout between Dennis Siver, who drops to 145-lbs for the first time, and ‘The Filipino Phenom’ Eddie Yagin, as well as a fight at bantamweight between Japanese striker Takeya Mizugaki and submission specialist Jeff Hougland.

UFC 151 is expected to take place on September 1, 2012 at the Mandalay Bay Events Center in Las Vegas, Nevada. The event will be headlined by a light heavyweight title match between current UFC champion Jon Jones and former Strikeforce title holder, Dan Henderson.

Nice fight! Johnson is on a roll lately and he might just take this one, although Castillo is pretty well rounded and always game so you can never count him out!

i was expecting tony ferguson to cream johnson in that last fight but johnson completely surprised me with his improved stand up, he has come leaps and bounds with it since tuf.
i like castillo too but i think johnson holds a speed advantage over him and is overall more athletic

johnson to grind out a decision.

Don't want to take away from Johnson, but I believe he broke coocoo's arm in the first round, which could arguably be why Johnson was able to win. Still busting someone's arm is badass, just hope he's been working on getting to his feet and stuffing shots, I expect Castillo to be looking for the take down quite a bit.
