Demetrious Johnson vs. Wilson Reis has been announced for UFC 201. According to Megan Olivi the pair will face off for the flyweight title as the co-main event for the pay-per-view.

Johnson confirmed the fight by tweeting an official poster.

Reis is currently No. 8 in the flyweight rankings, which has caused some to question the match-up.

Johnson faced Olympic gold medalist Henry Cejudo most recently at UFC 197 and won a performance bonus for his first-round knockout of Olympian. Johnson has won his last 10 fights, eight of those being title fights.

This announcement comes just a few days after inking a eight-fight contract.
