TUF Finales always mark the crowning of a new Ultimate Fighter, but at this season's capper, set for April 13, there will be real UFC gold on the line as well: UFC flyweight champion Demetrious Johnson will defend his title against John Moraga. Johnson continues to impress and rise up the pound-for-pound ranks with each bout; while Moraga, looking for his ninth straight victory, has been stellar inside the Octagon so far with impressive stoppages in his last two outings.

The UFC's nascent women's division will have its sophomore scrap between two of its top athletes as former Strikeforce champion Miesha Tate takes on rising star Cat Zingano.

The big guys will also be represented on the fight card, with heavyweights Gabriel "Napao" Gonzaga and Travis "Hapa" Browne slated to clash.

At featherweight, Cole Miller and Bart Palaszewski will go head to head; also at 145 pounds, striking specialist Justin Lawrence will face well-rounded veteran Daniel Pineda.

Verbal agreements are in for all of the bouts listed. More information on finale, including the location, venue and ticket information will be announced in coming weeks on ufc.com.
