Ultimate Fighter 6 runner-up Tommy Speer is expected to take on slick striker Anthony Johnson in a welterweight bout at UFC Fight Night 13 in April according to a report from MMA Junkie.
Although nothing is official, bout agreements are expected to be signed by both fighters in the coming weeks.
After a dominating run through the rest of his cast mates on the sixth season of ‘The Ultimate Fighter’, Speer hit a brick wall when he was quickly submitted by favorite Mac Danzig. Johnson started his career in the UFC off with a bang, literally, when he knocked out Chad Reiner in just 13 seconds at UFC Fight Night 10. Johnson then fell in his next fight when he was submitted via rear naked choke by Rich Clementi at UFC 76.
