Brendan Schaub has a likely date for his next fight, and he also has an opponent in mind.

Schaub, who was on a four-fight win streak before back-to-back losses to Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira and Ben Rothwell, told MMAjunkie.com Radio (www.mmajunkie.com/radio) that UFC matchmaker Joe Silva has targeted him for a UFC 154 return.

And if he gets his way, Schaub (8-3 MMA, 4-3 UFC) will fight heavy-handed heavyweight Lavar Johnson (17-6 MMA, 2-1 UFC).

UFC 154 takes place Nov. 17 at Montreal's Bell Centre. No fights have been officially announced for the pay-per-view event, but the UFC hopes to feature welterweight champ Georges St-Pierre vs. interim titleholder Carlos Condit, as well as welterweight contenders Johny Hendricks vs. Martin Kampmann.

"When I talked to Joe Silva [on July 6], they said Nov. 17 is the plan," Schaub said. "Nov. 17 in Montreal is the plan.

"And if it was up to me, I'd love to fight Lavar Johnson. That'd be fun, right?"

Calling out Johnson is pretty weak after Struve laid down the blueprint to beat him easily. I'd say the fight ends in under two minutes no matter what.

Schaub is one of the best technical strikers in the hw division imo, its just his damn chin that lets him down. lets be honest here though, if lavar lands on anyone in a fight they are going to be in trouble.

Schaub appears to have the beginning stages of Jardinism. He is a decent fighter, but if you land a good shot on his chin, lights out.

Dat chin.

Schaub is better at everything but taking a hit.
