UFC Flyweights Will Main Event PPVs, Says Dana White

UFC flyweight champion Demetrious Johnson will headline the upcoming UFC on FOX: Johnson vs. Moraga event vs. John Moraga.

The main event spot is another on free TV for “Mighty Mouse,” who was bumped from a headline act last year on a pay-per-view card.

During a press conference earlier this week, UFC president Dana White was asked if the promotion plans to use flyweights in the main event of PPVs down the road.

“Absolutely,” White said. “We’re in the building phase of the division.”

White added that Johnson has “been on a lot of big cards.” He won the belt in the co-main event of a pay-per-view last year over Joseph Benavidez.

Johnson-Moraga takes place July 27 from the KeyArena in Seattle.
