Demetrious Johnson Vs John Moraga Headlines UFC On Fox 8


The Flyweight championship will once again be defended on national television. This fight was originally set for The Ultimate Fighter 17 finale, but an injury forced this bout off the card. The fight is now scheduled for July 2013.

The bout will take place at the KeyArena in Seattle. Demetrious Johnson grew up in  Washington and also trains in Kirkland under Matt Hume. Look for him to be the crowd favorite come fight time.

Moraga is currently 2-0 since joining the UFC. Unfortunately his bouts have only been on the Facebook prelims. He earned stoppage wins over Ulysses Gomez and Chris Cariaso.

Miesha Tate and Liz Carmouche are also being targeted for the card. To round out the main card, Jake Ellenberger will be competing against Rory MacDonal and Robbie Lawler will face Tarec Saffiedine, the last Strikeforce Welterweight champion.
