Undefeated British submission wizard Paul Sass has agreed to face Michael Johnson at UFC Live on Versus 6, according to the organization.
The event, which will air on Versus on Oct. 1, is expected to take place at the Verizon Center in Washington D.C.
Amazingly, Sass (11-0) has won 8 of his 11 fights via triangle choke. He used that same finishing move in his UFC debut last October, submitting Mark Holst in the first round. That win earned the 22-year-old native of Liverpool, England, the Submission of the Night award.
Johnson (9-5), a finalist on the 12th season of The Ultimate Fighter, won his UFC debut at UFC Live on Versus 4 last month when defeated Edward Faaloloto via first-round TKO. "The Menace" lost in the finals of TUF 12 to Jonathan Brookins via unanimous decision.
Already announced for the event are Charlie Brenneman vs. Anthony Johnson and Mac Danzig vs. Matt Wiman 2.

Can anyone top the big three of Silva, Jones, and GSP as the best pound-for-pounder fighter?
