Breaking: Demetrious Johnson Out Of TUF 17 Finale Fight

To update an earlier report, UFC flyweight champion Demetrious Johnson has suffered an injury and will not be able to compete in April against John Moraga at The Ultimate Fighter 17 Finale. The news was confirmed on UFC Tonight Tuesday.

UFC officials are currently working to put together a new main event for the card, as it is scheduled to take place at Mandalay Bay Events Center instead of a smaller venue.

The card will also feature the second female fight in the promotion, as Miesha Tate battles Cat Zingano. Heavyweights Gabriel Gonzaga and Travis Browne are also slated for action that night.

It has yet to be reported what kind of injury caused Johnson to pull out of the fight.
