By FCF Staff
Although Kajan Johnson won’t be competing on the TUF Nations Finale card next week, the show’s competitor has been booked to fight Tae Hyun Bang at UFC 174.
The June 14th card will be hosted by Vancouver’s Rogers Arena, and will feature flyweight champ Demetrious Johnson taking on Ali Bagautinov in the main event.
Johnson (19-10-1) will be returning to the lightweight division, after competing at 170 for TUF Nations. The Tristar fighter tapped out Brendan O’Reilly in the show’s quarterfinals, but was KO’d by Chad Laprise in the semis. Johnson also had his jaw broken in the fight.
Bang (16-8) will be looking to rebound from the unanimous decision loss he incurred versus Mairbek Taisumov, which took place in his Octagon debut at UFC FN 34.
The South Korean fighter has gone 3-2 in his last 5 contests.
Some of the other bouts that have been confirmed for UFC 174 include Rory MacDonald vs. Tyron Woodley, Daniel Sarafian vs. Kiichi Kunimoto, and Mike Easton vs. Yves Jabouin.
