Anthony Johnson’s next fight will come in July, as “Rumble” takes on Antonio Rogerio Nogueira at UFC on FOX 12. The bout was first reported by FOXSports.com and since confirmed by the promotion.

Set for July 26 from San Jose and the SAP Center, the Johnson-Nogueira fight is the first bout announced. It is set to be part of the main card, but not the main event.

Johnson (17-4) made a triumphant return to the UFC when he dominated Phil Davis last month. The win improved his Octagon mark to 8-4 overall and was his seventh consecutive victory overall.

After struggling to make the welterweight limit, Johnson was released following a loss to Vitor Belfort. He roamed around a handful of promotions, and even took a heavyweight bout with former UFC champion Andrei Arlovski that he won, before signing back on.

Nogueira (21-5) has had issues staying healthy, as he last fought in early 2013 when he scored a decision over ex-UFC champ Rashad Evans. The brother of Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira, “Lil’ Nog” has won two straight and is 8-2 in his last 10 fights dating back to 2008.
