UFC 202 gets Johnson vs Teixeira, Cerrone vs Story

UFC 202 just got a little bit better.

The company announced today the addition of a light-heavyweight eliminator matchup between #2-ranked Anthony Johnson (21-5-0) and #3-ranked Glover Teixeira (25-4-0), while streaking welterweight #14 Donald Cerrone (30-7-0) tackles #9 Rick Story (19-8-0).

Both Johnson and Teixeira are working their way towards another title shot. Teixeira looked particularly impressive with stoppages over Rashad Evans and Patrick Cummins.

Cerrone continues to knock down everything the UFC puts towards him, but Story is the bigger guy with wrestling and a granite chin. He will need his smarts as well as his tool belt if he wants to reign supreme.

UFC 202 takes place August 20th from the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada. Conor McGregor (19-3-0) rematches Nate Diaz (19-10-0) in the main event.
