Hours removed from a report that Chris Spang will fight Adlan Amagov at the upcoming, April 6th, UFC on FUEL card in Stockholm, Sweden, news has surfaced saying that Renan Madadi will take on lightweight Michael Johnson at the event.

Although the UFC has not made an official announcement regarding the bout, Swedish website MMA NYTT is reporting that the Madadi, Johnson match-up will take place on the card.

Madadi (12-3), who is a Swedish resident, is coming off a split decision loss to Cristiano Marcello at UFC 153 in September, after submitting Yoislandy Izquierdo at UFC on FUEL card last April.

Johnson (12-7) lost by unanimous decision to Myles Jury at UFC 155 in December, which came after the TUF vet scored consecutive wins over Shane Roller, Tony Ferguson and Danny Castillo.

UFC on FUEL TV 9 will be hosted by the Ericsson Globe Arena and will feature Alexander Gustafsson versus Gegard Mousasi in the main event.
