Although many expected undefeated British submission specialist Paul Sass to be granted a spot on the UFC 138 card in England this November, "Sassangle" will instead be competing in our nation's capital on October 1st against TUF 12 runner-up, Michael Johnson. The UFC's UK office confirmed the lightweight booking via Twitter this morning:

International Sass-angle! fights on UFC LIVE 6 Washington D.C October 1st v Michael Johnson
Paul "Sassangle" Sass (11-0)
Win Mark Holst (submission - triangle choke) - UFC 120

Michael "The Menace" Johnson (9-5)
Win Edward Faaloloto (TKO) - UFC on Versus 4
Loss Jonathan Brookins (unam. decision) - TUF 12 Finale
Win Chris McDaniel (TKO) - FM Productions

This also the first confirmation from the UFC that the October 1st Versus-televised event will indeed be held in Washington D.C. The card is also expected to feature a welterweight bout between Anthony Johnson and Charlie Brenneman, and a lightweight rematch between Matt Wiman and Mac Danzig.
