UFC flyweight champion Demetrious Johnson will return to the Octagon this coming July, defending his title against John Moraga at UFC on FOX 8. Officials confirmed news of the bout on Wednesday night.
The card takes place July 27 from Seattle’s KeyArena. The co-main event will pit Rory MacDonald against Jake Ellenberger.
Female fighters Miesha Tate and Liz Carmouche were also made official, along with a previously announced bout between Tarec Saffiedine and Robbie Lawler.
Johnson was forced out of a previous scheduled match with Moraga due to an injury. The two were linked to The Ultimate Fighter 17 Finale.
