The heavyweights are coming to FOX! That’s right heavyweight knockout artist Lavar Johnson will take on repeat knockout offender Brendan Schaub at UFC on Fox 5. Both fighters are coming off losses, as they will be looking for the rebound win on Fox. Don’t think that those losses will make these two fighters tentative as they are known for throwing leather at all cost. UFC on Fox 5 takes place on December 8th at the KeyArena in Seattle, Washington. The fight is scheduled for the undercard, but if there is a quick finish look for it to end up on the main card.
Lavar Johnson bit off more than he could chew with a quick turn around at UFC 146. Looking for his third win in four months Lavar took on Stefan Struve. Hunting for the knockout Lavar was submitted in a little over a minute, and that loss took a lot of steam out of Lavar after back to back knockout wins. Look for Lavar to be looking for to his winning uppercuts in this fight, and if history repeats itself he may just be able to do so.
After Brendan was knocked out in the Ultimate Fighter finale he went on a four fight winning streak that included three stoppages. Unfortunately, all that momentum was stopped when he was knocked out in back to back fights. That was his toughest competition as well with him facing Big Nog and Ben Rothwell. If Brendan does lose in this fight he may be on his way out of the organization as three losses in a row is a deal breaker in most cases. Only time will tell who will come out on top in this clash of heavyweights.
