Kotani vs. Johnson Set for September 27

Naoyuki Kotani, winner of 13 of his last 15 bouts, will seek his first UFC win at home in Japan on September 27, as he faces Canada's Kajan Johnson in a UFC Fight Night bout at Saitama Super Arena.

UFC Fight Night is headlined by the heavyweight battle between Josh Barnett and Roy Nelson. Tickets are on sale now.

The Ultimate Fighter Nations' Johnson is coming off his first UFC win in May, as he decisioned Lipeng Zhang. Now Kotani wants to leave the Octagon with a victory, and he will pull out all the stops to get it this September.
