Two cast-members from the 12th season of The Ultimate Fighter will face off in Chicago at the next UFC on Fox show, when Cody McKenzie meets Michael Johnson in a lightweight bout. McKenzie tweeted the news earlier today:

Cody McKenzie
I will be fighting jan 28th in chicago against my friend michael johnson

McKenzie and Johnson were both members of Georges St. Pierre's team on the show, and as such, never fought each other, although they certainly know each other quite well after spending that time training together. Both men have seen mixed results in the UFC since appearing on the show. Johnson made it all the way to the finals but lost a decision to Jonathan Brookins. Since then, he's gone 1-1. McKenzie used his trademark guillotine choke to beat Aron Wilkinson at season finale event, but has followed that up by getting choked out himself, twice in a row now.

Michael "The Menace" Johnson (9-6)
L Paul Sass (submission - heel hook) - UFC on Versus 6
W Edward Faaloloto (TKO) - UFC on Versus 4
L Jonathan Brookins (unam. decision) - TUF 12 Finale
Cody McKenzie (12-2)
L Vagner Rocha (submission - rear naked choke) - UFN 24
