Demetrious Johnson-John Moraga title bout sweetens 'TUF' finale card - Sports - ReviewJournal.com
When the champion of the current season of "The Ultimate Fighter" is crowned in Las Vegas on April 13, the bout will not be the main attraction. |
Flyweight champion Demetrious Johnson will defend his title against John Moraga on the card, according to sources close to the organization. It will mark the first time a UFC belt is on the line on a "TUF" finale.
No venue has been announced for the event.
In addition, Miesha Tate will make her UFC debut against Cat Zingano. It's only the second female fight the UFC has announced and the first one that doesn't involve champion Ronda Rousey.
Also, heavyweights Gabriel Gonzaga and Travis Browne will meet.
Two featherweight fights are also set to be announced.
Bart Palaszewski will fight Cole Miller and Daniel Pineda will take on Justin Lawrence.
Glad that Mighty Mouse gets a new opponent instead of an immediate rematch with Benavidez.
