The main event for UFC on FOX 9 is a fight that is sure to make heads spin as the fastest division in MMA. It will be a difficult task to keep track of let alone officiating.

The main event is a flyweight title rematch between Demetrious Johnson (18-2-1) and Joseph Benavidez (19-3).

Fittingly, the man who will officiate that bout is arguably the best in MMA, ‘Big’ John McCarthy.

MMAJunkie received confirmation of the official selection.

A highly-anticipated bantamweight bout in the co-main event carries heavy title implications as Urijah Faber (29-6) takes on Michael McDonald (16-2). The referee for that bout will be Herb Dean.

UFC on FOX 9 will take place at the Sleep Train Arena this Saturday, Dec. 14th. The event will air at 8 p.m. ET/5 p.m. PT.
