Johnson (12-6) will be looking for his fourth win in 2012. A former contestant on "The Ultimate Fighter" reality series, Johnson has built a 4-2 record in the UFC since 2010.
He is coming off a highlight-reel knockout of Danny Castillo at a UFC on FX event earlier this month.
Jury (10-0) has just one official fight in 2012 after competing on TUF 15. He finished Chris Saunders in the first round via guillotine choke in June. The 23-year-old has posted finishes in all of his professional bouts.
UFC 155 will take place at the MGM Grand Garden Arena. A heavyweight title fight between Junior dos Santos and Cain Velasquez is set to headline.
