UFC lightweight Bobby Green has agreed to face Josh Thomson on the main card of UFC on Fox 12: Lawler vs Brown later this month (JUL. 26, 2014) from the SAP Center in San Jose, California.
Thomson was left without an opponent when Michael Johnson backed out of the fight with an injury.
His opponent Green was previously slated to meet the hard hitting Abel Trujillo at UFC 176 before that event was cancelled after champion Jose Aldo was removed from the main event title fight with Chad Mendes.
Green is currently on a seven fight win streak, while Thomson wants to rebound from a controversial decision loss to Benson Henderson.
