UFC Fight Night: Poirier vs. Johnson (also known as UFC Fight Night 94) was a mixed martial arts event produced by the Ultimate Fighting Championship held on September 17, 2016, at State Farm Arena in Hidalgo, Texas.[2][3]


After contesting several other PPV and Fight Night events across Texas, this was the first that the promotion has hosted in Hidalgo.[3]

A lightweight bout between Dustin Poirier and Michael Johnson served as the event headliner.[4]

Manvel Gamburyan was scheduled to face Alejandro Pérez at the event. However, Gamburyan pulled out of the fight in mid-August for undisclosed personal reasons and was replaced by Albert Morales.[5]

Abel Trujillo was expected to face Evan Dunham at the event. However, Trujillo pulled out of the fight on September 5, citing an undisclosed injury.[6] In turn, former WSOF Featherweight Champion and promotional newcomer Rick Glenn was announced as his replacement.[7]
