On Friday, a lightweight showdown between Michael Johnson (pictured) and Beneil Dariush was announced for UFC Fight Night: Nashville.

The August 8 event goes down inside Bridgestone Arena in Nashville, Tennessee.

Johnson will be riding a four-fight winning streak into the tango. “The Menace” most recently posted a unanimous decision over Edson Barboza in February.

Dariush is also perfect through his past four fights. The up-and-coming 26-year-old dominated veteran Jim Miller in his last outing.

Fox Sports 1 will broadcast the main card live.

Here is the show’s updated lineup:

Matt Van Buren vs. Jonathan Wilson

Michael Johnson vs. Beneil Dariush

Ovince Saint Preux vs. Glover Teixeira
