http://mmajunkie.com/news/14353/anthony-johnson-vs-matt-brown-nearly-set-for-the-ultimate-fighter-9-finale.mma

Two hard-hitting welterweights are likely to meet at The Ultimate Fighter 9 Finale in June.

Anthony Johnson (7-2 MMA, 4-2 UFC), who was originally expected to fight John Howard at the event, will instead likely take on Matt Brown (9-7 MMA, 3-1 UFC).

Reports that the fight is set are a little premature, but both fighters have agreed to the contest, and bout agreements are expected to be finalized this week, a source close to the event told MMAjunkie.com (http://www.mmajunkie.com).

The event, which concludes the upcoming season of "The Ultimate Fighter: U.S. vs. U.K.," takes place June 20 at The Pearl at the Palms Casino Resort and airs on Spike TV.

Johnson returns to action looking for his third consecutive win. Since a controversial loss to Kevin Burns at UFC Fight Night 14 (Johnson suffered a deep eye poke, but the referee missed it and allowed the fight to continue), Johnson has avenged the loss with a head-kick KO of Burns and most recently scored a first-round TKO of Luigi Fioravanti.

Brown, meanwhile, looks to continue his career resurrection when he also goes for his third straight victory. After a stint on "The Ultimate Fighter 7," Brown is 3-1 in the UFC, and the lone loss came via split decision to undefeated Dong Hyun Kim. Brown most recently scored a first-round TKO thrashing of Pete Sell.

Maine has a good swing for a pitcher but on anything that moves, he has no chance. And if it's a fastball, it has to be up in the zone. Basically, the pitcher has to hit his bat. - Mike Pelfrey

I'm so happy for Kampman. He's always been one of my favourite fighters. ;-D

Yeah great fight, saved an otherwise lackluster card. This TUF opener is dragging.

It was a good card, Griffin vs Dos Anjos was a war.

Condit vs Kampmann was entertaining, i thought Condit won though.

Bader looked good, his wrestling really comes in handy, once he polishes his striking he is going to be really tough.

Miller dominated Junie, he looked overwhelmed in there.

Bader looked very much like a UFC wrestler of five or more years ago. Excellent control, very little ability to do anything with it. I thought the Griffin fight had it's moments but most of it was a sloppy slugfest between two guy's whose best skills are on the ground.

Was that b/c Kampmann was cut up or b/c of the failed submissions?
I agree that it was very close and I thought that they were going to give it to Condit b/c the UFC and the announcers were just building him up so much. Condit got the better of the striking but Kampmann dominated on the ground - I just don't understand why he kept gassing himself on those guillotines. Condit was not as superior in the striking as the announcers were making him out to be. Kampmann is a very good striker. Like I said it was very close and I'm surprised and pleased that Kampmann won b/c I think that he deserved it.

I thought that Bader was impressive. I'm impatient for Amir Sodollah to make his debut. He's probably my favourite guy from all of the TUFs and he still hasn't had a real fight.

I wasn't crazy about the TUF opener. None of those guys looked good and I couldn't understand a thing that they said.
