Matt Brown vs. Anthony Johnson at 'TUF 9 Finale'

A welterweight bout between Matt Brown and Anthony Johnson has been confirmed for "The Ultimate Fighter 9 Finale" on June 20 in Las Vegas.

"The Ultimate Fighter 7" winner Amir Sadollah previewed the fight during last night's "Inside the Octagon" segment during "The Ultimate Fighter 9."

"They both have very good recent victories, very good showings," Sadollah said. "They both have that explosive fight style you want to see. As a welterweight, that's I fight I'm going to want to watch just because I think win or lose, both of these guys are very relevant in the division."

Johnson has won his last two against Luigi Fioravanti and Kevin Burns at Spike TV-televised UFC events. Brown, also on a two-fight win streak, was last seen in front of hometown fans picking apart Pete Sell at UFC 96 in Columbus, Ohio.
