Brendan Schaub told MMAjunkie.com Radio recently that he is likely headed for UFC 154 and a heavyweight meeting with Lavar Johnson.

UFC 154 takes place November 17 from Montreal’s Bell Centre. The main event is expected to feature Georges St-Pierre and Carlos Condit meeting for the undisputed UFC welterweight title.

Schaub (8-3) won four consecutive fights before dropping back-to-back bouts to Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira and Ben Rothwell.

Against Johnson, the former Ultimate Fighter finalist will be facing a knockout machine. Johnson (17-6) won his first two fights inside the Octagon before being submitted by Stefan Struve earlier this year.
