Ulysses Gomez was ready and willing to step into the UFC and face anyone the promotion asked of him. Now, Gomez will get his chance, as the flyweight has signed to meet John Moraga.
Moraga was scheduled to face Ian McCall, but McCall pulled out with an injury. MMADiehards.com first reported the fight as being placed on UFC on Fox 4, which takes place August 4 from Los Angeles.
Gomez (9-2) is a former two-time champion in Tachi Palace Fights, having won both the flyweight and bantamweight titles. Moraga (10-1) will also be making his debut with the UFC on the card.
“I appreciate everyone’s support, all the texts/messages that I got from,” Gomez wrote on Twitter. “It means a lot & I will remember it when I walk out there to fight.”
