Poirier vs. Johnson Headlines in Hidalgo

Top lightweights collide for the first time on September 17, when No. 8-ranked Dustin Poirier faces No. 10-ranked Michael Johnson in the five-round UFC Fight Night main event at State Farm Arena in Hidalgo, Texas.

The Fox Sports 1-televised card marks the promotion’s first event in Texas since UFC 192 in Houston on October 3, 2015.

In the co-main event, it will be a meeting of middleweight contenders, when No. 9-ranked Uriah Hall battles No. 10-ranked Derek Brunson.

Plus, three other main card bouts were made official Monday, as Abel Trujillo takes on Evan Dunham in lightweight action, Manny Gamburyan meets Alejandro Perez in a bantamweight bout, and hard-hitting featherweight Sam Sicilia returns to take on Gabriel Benitez.

In a pair of prelim bouts, it's a bantamweight bout between Joey Gomez and Jose Quinonez, and a featherweight contest pitting Chas Skelly against Maximo Blanco.
