On Saturday, Sept. 17, the UFC will host UFC Fight Night 94: Poirier vs. Johnson from the State Farm Arena in Hidalgo, Texas.

In the night’s main event, a pair of top-10 lightweight lock horns as Dustin Poirier takes on Michael Johnson. Louisiana’s Poirier has reeled off four straight wins since returning to 155 pounds after a lengthy stint at featherweight. The 27-year-old has stopped three of those four wins inside the first round, including a UFC 199 knockout of Bobby Green earlier this year. Johnson, meanwhile, enters the bout riding a two-fight skid. The former Ultimate Fighter runner-up has dropped back-to-back decisions to Beneil Dariush and Nate Diaz.

The co-main event features a middleweight battle between TUF alum Uriah Hall and Strikeforce veteran Derek Brunson. Hall will aim to bounce back from a decision loss to Robert Whittaker in November, while Brunson rides the momentum of three straight first-round knockouts.

The 12-fight event kicks off Saturday with two bouts streaming live on UFC Fight Pass at 7 p.m. ET. Four additional preliminary card bouts follow on Fox Sports 1 at 8 p.m. ET, with the six-fight main card airing at 10 p.m. ET, also on Fox Sports 1.

The fighters will hit the scales at 5 p.m. ET on Friday. A live video feed appears above (courtesy of the UFC), while the results appear below.
