Brendan Schaub-Lavar Johnson Re-Booked For UFC 157

Heavyweights Brendan Schaub and Lavar Johnson won’t have to wait long to face off, as MMAjunkie.com is reporting the two have agreed to meet in February at UFC 157.

The two were originally set to collide this past weekend, but a groin injury knocked Johnson off the card. No replacement was found, and Schaub was removed, as well.

UFC 157 takes place February 23 from Anaheim’s Honda Center. The placement of the bout is currently unknown.

Schaub (8-3) is coming off a pair of losses to Ben Rothwell and Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira. He is a former runner-up on The Ultimate Fighter.

Johnson (17-6) suffered his first UFC loss recently, falling to Stefan Struve. The ex-Strikeforce competitor had won his first two UFC bouts.
