By FCF Staff
The Ultimate Fighting Championship’s official U.K. Twitter account announced today that the promotion’s upcoming October 1st, UFC Live on Versus 6 card will take place in Washington, D.C. No information regarding the venue was given.
In addition, the organization announced that Britain’s Paul Sass will face American lightweight Michael Johnson at the October 1st card.
Sass (11-0) is coming off a successful Octagon debut in October, as the undefeated fighter submitted Mark Holst with a first round, triangle choke at UFC 120. Since Sass turned professional in 2007, 10 of his 11 victories have come via submission.
Johnson (9-5) returned to the winner’s column in June by stopping Edward Faaloloto at UFC Live on Versus 4. The win came after Johnson dropped a unanimous decision loss to Jonathon Brookins at the TUF 12 Finale in December.
Other bouts scheduled for UFC Live on Versus 6 include a welterweight bout between Anthony Johnson and Charlie Brenneman and a lightweight fight between Mac Danzig and Matt Wiman.
