Brendan Schaub (8-3) now has a date for his return to the octagon. Nov. 17 at UFC 154 in Montreal, Canada. He may not have an official opponent as of yet, but he has someone in mind that he would like to see opposite of him in the cage. Lavar “Big” Johnson (17-6).

Via MMAJunkie Radio:

“When I talked to Joe Silva [on July 6], they said Nov. 17 is the plan,” Schaub said. “Nov. 17 in Montreal is the plan.”

“And if it was up to me, I’d love to fight Lavar Johnson. That’d be fun, right?”

The match seems to be a perfect fit. With both men looking to strike and both coming off losses after a successful run, the word from Johnson should be all that is needed to complete the bout.

Both men known for laying it all out on the line, the match-up is guaranteed fireworks, as a likely knockout or fight of the night candidate.
