Anthony Johnson will face another former UFC fighter when he takes on Jake Rosholt at Xtreme Fight Night 8 on September 21 from Oklahoma. That will follow Johnson's bout with Esteves Jones in late August at Titan Fighting Championship 24.
Johnson (11-4) earned his first victory in Titan over Dave Branch earlier this year. It was his first fight since being released by the UFC after missing weight and losing to Vitor Belfort.
Rosholt (12-4) is 5-1 with one no-contest in his last seven fights. The former Oklahoma State University standout went 1-2 in his UFC career back in 2009, defeating Chris Leben and falling to Dan Miller and Kendall Grove.
