MMAWeekly.com has the story:
Just weeks after the proposed match-up between Anthony Johnson and John Howard fell through, Johnson now has a new opponent as “Ultimate Fighter” season 7 competitor, Matt Brown, has been tapped as a replacement to fight on the “Ultimate Fighter” season 9 finale show.
The fight was confirmed to MMAWeekly.com by sources close to the fight on Tuesday.
Matt Brown steps into the fight with Johnson coming off of a first round knockout win over Pete Sell at UFC 96 in early March. Brown caught Sell early in the round, but referee Yves Lavigne allowed the action to continue, which led to the Ohio native punishing his opponent for another series of strikes before the fight was stopped.
