Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) Light Heavyweight contender Anthony Johnson will throw hands with Glover Teixiera in the UFC 202 pay-per-view (PPV) co-main event TONIGHT (Sat., Aug. 20, 2016) inside T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada.
Johnson (21-5) came up short in his championship title fight against Daniel Cormier roughly one year ago, but managed to “Rumble” his way back into contention with consecutive knockout wins over Jimi Manuwa and Ryan Bader. One more is likely to get him another crack at the crown.
But it won’t be easy.
Teixeira (25-4) went down on points to Jon Jones in 2014, then got wrestled into a follow-up loss against Phil Davis. Undaunted, the Brazilian roared back with three straight wins — all finishes — over the top competition, including his recent knockout over Rashad Evans.
