Number one ranked light heavyweight contender Anthony "Rumble" Johnson makes his return to the Octagon at UFC 191 on Saturday, September 5, as he faces British bomber Jimi "Poster Boy" Manuwa in a striking fan's dream match at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas.

Johnson's original foe for the bout, Jan Blachowicz, will face an opponent to be announced shortly.

Tickets for UFC 191, which is headlined by the flyweight championship rematch between Demetrious Johnson and John Dodson, are on sale now to UFC Fight Club members. A special Internet ticket pre-sale will be available to UFC newsletter subscribers Thursday, July 30 starting at 1 pm PT.
