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.

It is kinda of a step down for Johnson after his recent wins, but I think it will be a tougher fight than people think. Jury has some good skills and it should be a good stand up battle!!! It's a tough situation for Johnson if he loses he takes a big step back, or even if it's a close fight. Winning doesn't move him up at all!!! He should of pressed Joe Silva for a bigger fight!!!

I agree, Castillo is definitely a bigger name than Jury, and yes Castillo was winning the fight until he got KO'd.

I'd rather see guys like Johnson stay busy with lesser competition than sit forever to fight a name guy.

Yeah, but if he loses, then that sets him back further from getting top competition.

Kind of a strange matchup. Johnson deserves a bigger name imo and Jury should be a guy that they bring up slowly.

Completely agree Budge I thought for sure Johnson would be headed for a fight with a contender at 55 and I think Jury has a ton of potential the UFC should build the young man up not just toss him in with a guy who is on a roll.

Easy fight. I don't understand the match up
Johnson will win out 2012 year.

johnson probably takes him down and controls all day, jury does have crisp striking and good subs and is also undefeated as a pro. Although johnson is definitely ready for a big name and higher ranked guy...i still like this match up.
