MMAWeekly with the scoop:
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.
Ohh...nice replacement in my opinion. Matt Brown has really impressed me since his days on TUF. I honestly never gave the guy a chance at doing anything, but he's proved me wrong for sure. Brown likes to stand and bang as does Johnson so this has somebody getting KTFO all over it. Whereas, John Howard was more of a GnP type of fighter. Brown is coming off that dismantling of Pete Sell, and Johnson is coming off a win over Luigi Fioravanti. This TUF 9 Finale is going to be stacked! Who do you like in this fight?
Also, just wanted to let you guys know that I'm going to be away from the blog today for the most part. I'll be back this afternoon. Feel free to use the fanpost/fanshot sections to help me keep the blog updated in my absence.
