Thomson and Johnson booked for San Jose on FOX

Former Strikeforce lightweight champion Josh Thomson will meet No. 10-ranked lightweight Michael Johnson at UFC on FOX in San Jose, Ca. on July 26.

Former Strikeforce lightweight champion Josh Thomson, coming off a split decision loss to Benson Henderson in January, is looking to climb back into title contention.

That journey begins on July 26 when he meets No. 10-ranked lightweight Michael Johnson, who has won his last three fights inside the Octagon. Johnson's knockout win over Gleison Tibau and decision victories over Joe Lauzon and Melvin Guillard have opened many eyes, and the 27-year-old St. Louis, Mo. native hopes to take another step up in the rankings with a signature win over Thomson.

UFC on FOX will take place in San Jose, Calif . Stay tuned to as more fights are added to the card, which already includes a light heavyweight showdown between Anthony "Rumble" Johnson and Rogerio Nogueira.
