More Updates on UFC on Fox 8 Fighters

UFC on Fox 8 will be a flyweight main event as Demetrious Johnson defends his title against John Moraga. This much-awaited event will be on July 27, 2013 at the Keyarena, Seattle, Washington, United States.

Fans just could not wait for these two flyweights to fight since these two are known to have one of the toughest records to beat. Demetrious “Mighty MouseJohnson has 17 wins, 2 losses and only 1 draw. This superb fighter from Kirkland, Washington, USA is raring to fight after his main event victory over John Dodson at UFC on Fox 6 where he won via unanimous decision. Before this win he was able to beat Joseph Benavidez via split decision at the memorable UFC 152 and Ian McCall through unanimous decision at UFC on Fox 3 main event. Johnson is one of the fighters who were able to maintain a close to perfect winning record from the start of his professional career. From the time he first fought at AXFC, USA MMA and GF he held a 10-win streak until he lost to Brad Pickett at WEC 48 –Aldo versus Faber via unanimous decision.

John Moraga on the other hand is a fighter from Phoenix, Arizona. He is just 19 years of age but he holds a superb 13 win and 1 loss record. Although his last win was five months ago against Chris Cariaso at the UFC 155 – Dos Santos versus Velasquez via submission guillotine choke in just 1 minute and 11 seconds of round 1. This victory was among a series of 7 consecutive wins from July 2010. Moraga has remained undefeated from 2010 and has been victorious over great fighters like Nathaniel Baker, Freddie Lux, Matthew Garcia, Ulysses Gomes (defeated via KO) and Jose Carbajal to name a few. His only defeat came from John Dodson at the Nemesis Fighting- MMA Global Invasion in December 2010 via unanimous decision.

Aside from the Johnson versus Moraga main event, fans will surely delight as their female favorites will also be a part of the show. It will be a showdown between Miesha “Cupcake” Tate and Liz “Girl-Rilla” Carmouche. Carmouche is fresh from her terrible defeat against Ronda “Rowdy” Rousey at UFC 157 main event where Rousey once again won via her signature arm bar move.
