Two lightweights looking to get back in the win column have been reportedly added to the UFC’s Sweden card on April 6th. TUF 12 runner-up Michael Johnson and Sweden’s Reza Madadi will fight on April 6th according to Swedish website MMA Nytt.
Johnson (12-7 MMA, 4-3 UFC) was one of the rising talents in the 155 lbs division, and it reached a high-point with his KO win over Danny Castillo in October. The road to a potential major step-up in competition was thwarted by Myles Jury by decision in December at UFC 155. That loss snapped his 3 fight win streak and once again showed he still had deficiencies in his ground game.
Madadi (12-3 MMA, 1-1 UFC) won his UFC debut in Stockholm last year over Yoislandy Izquierdo by guillotine choke, but lost a rather contestable decision over Cristiano Marcello at UFC 153 in Brazil. The 32-year-old has won 7 of his 12 fights by submission.
