Eleven bouts are official for the Ultimate Fighting Championship’s upcoming, January 22nd, “Fight for the Troops” card in Killeen, Texas, as a welterweight tilt between Mike Guymon and DaMarques Johnson has been added to the card. The event, which will take place at Killeen’s Fort Hood and will be broadcast on Spike, will see Kenny Florian take on rising lightweight Evan Dunham in the main event.
Guymon (12-4-1) has gone 1-2 in the Octagon thus far, after being submitted by Rory MacDonald at Fight Night 20 in January, the former King of the Cage champion worked his way to a unanimous decision win over Yoshiyuki Yoshida in May. Most recently, at UFC 121 in October, Guymon was tapped out by Daniel Roberts with a first round Anaconda Choke.
Johnson (11-8) is coming off a stoppage loss to Matt Riddle at the second UFC on Versus card in August, after earning back-to-back victories over Edgar Garcia and Brad Blackburn. Johnson’s only other official UFC appearance took place last June, when he was submitted by James Wilks in the finals of the ninth season of “The Ultimate Fighter.”
Some of the other bouts that are scheduled for the January 22nd Fight for the Troops event include Matt Mitrione vs. Tim Hague, Mark Hominick vs. George Roop, Pat Barry vs. Joey Beltran and Cole Miller vs. Matt Wiman.
