UFC veteran Michael Johnson returns to action at UFC 274, hoping to snap his four-fight losing streak.

Combate was first to report the news that Johnson will fight Alan Patrick on April 9 at UFC 274. Partick would confirm the news on his Instagram.

Johnson (19-17) will be looking to snap the longest losing streak of his UFC career. The longtime UFC veteran fought once in 2021 against fellow UFC veteran Clay Guida and lost a unanimous decision. Prior to that, he dropped fights to Thiago Moises, Stevie Ray, and Josh Emmett. His last win was against Artem Lobov at UFC Fight Night: Volkan vs. Smith.

Like his opponent, Patrick (15-3-1) will be looking to snap his own losing streak, the first losing streak of his 13-year career. The Brazilian known as “Nuguette” returned from a two-year layoff in 2020 and lost a dominant unanimous decision to Bobby Green. In his last outing, he was inadvertently poked by Mason Jones and could not continue.

UFC 274 takes place on May 7, 2022, at a location and venue yet to be announced. However, the event is rumored to take place in Phoenix, Arizona.

The UFC 274 card currently looks like this:

  • Glover Teixeira (c) vs. Jiří Procházka – for the UFC light heavyweight championship
  • Charles Oliveira (c) vs. Justin Gaethje – for the UFC lightweight championship
  • Macy Chiasson vs. Norma Dumont
  • Ariane Carnelossi vs. Loopy Godinez
  • Blagoy Ivanov vs. Marcos Rogerio de Lima
  • C.J. Vergara vs. Kleydson Rodrigues
  • Joe Lauzon vs. Donald Cerrone
  • Journey Newson vs. Fernie Garcia
