    Demetrious Johnson vs Ali Bagautinov set for UFC 174 pay-per-view (PPV) headliner on June 14 in Vancouver

    Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) President Dana White has finally made good on his promise and booked a pair of flyweights for a pay-per-view (PPV) main event.

    Reigning 125-pound champion Demetrious Johnson will put his title on the line against streaking Russian import Ali Bagautinov in the headlining affair of UFC 174, which takes place on June 14, 2014, inside the Rogers Arena in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada.

    "Showdown" Joe Ferraro brought word of the pairing earlier today.

    I mean, beating Lineker put Ali first in line....not too sure what his chances are though, but it should be a fun fight.

    I thought Nate's contract now sees him making like 15 to show and 15 to win?

    I just pictured Nate Diaz as a flyweight. All I got was his head on a stick getting ragdolled by Mighty Mouse. Thank you for providing this visual.

    I see Johnson retaining with a late submission.

    Vancouver is never going to get a good card.

    Really surprised they are giving Johnson a main event on the PPV the lighter weight main events just don't bring the numbers in. And doesn;t seem like there is going to be a lot of bigger names on the under card to help matters.

    Agree with kevo on ufc 115. That card was great especially coming off an incredibly hyped up UFC 114 card that ended up being boring as hell.

    Anyway, I'm fairly certain this will be the worst selling card of the year.

    Another addition to 174. Good for Kajan to get a fight in Vancouver.
