The UFC on Versus 4 show in Pittsburgh has added a lightweight bout to the undecard with former “Ultimate Fighter” finalist Michael Johnson meeting Edward Faaloloto.
The promotion made the announcement about the new bout on Monday.
Johnson (8-5) makes his first appearance in the UFC since losing in the finale of Season 12 of “The Ultimate Fighter” to Jonathan Brookins.
A strong wrestler, Johnson will look to get back on track when he faces a WEC veteran in June.
Nick Ring Meets James Head at UFC 131 in Vancouver - Bloody Elbow

The ankle Joe Lauzon tweaked in a mad dash to check on his hospitalized brother is mended, and he's ready to fight again.
And wouldn't you know it, the UFC has a booking. UFC officials today announced Lauzon (19-6 MMA, 7-3 UFC) meets British lightweight Curt Warburton (7-2 MMA, 1-1 UFC) at UFC on Versus 4.
The event takes place June 26 at Consol Energy Center in Pittsburgh.
A headliner has yet to be announced for the Versus-televised event.
In February Lauzon was scheduled for a goodwill tour in Iraq when he sprained his ankle en route to a Massachusetts hospital to check on his younger brother, ex-UFC lightweight Dan Lauzon, who'd been admitted after being assaulted at a local bar. As it turned out, his brother was OK, but his older brother wasn't.
TUF 11 competitor Nick Ring will fight in his native Canada this June when he faces UFC newcomer James Head at UFC 131 in Vancouver, as announced by the UFC today. Ring is coming off a contentious decision victory over Riki Fukuda at UFC 127 in February, while Head mostly recently upset UFC castoff, Gerald Harris, in a decision victory in February as well.
