With Ross Pearson forced to withdraw from his March 8 rematch against Melvin Guillard due to a knee injury, Guillard's former Blackzilian teammate, Michael "The Menace" Johnson, will step up for the UFC Fight Night co-main event in London.
Winner of back-to-back bouts over Joe Lauzon and Gleison Tibau, Johnson's bout with "The Young Assassin" promises to be one of the most memorable of the new year.
In the main event at the O2 Arena, light heavyweight contender Alexander Gustafsson squares off with British knockout artist Jimi Manuwa. UFC London 2014 takes place on March 8 and airs in the US exclusively on UFC Fight Pass.
