UFC® RETURNS TO KEYARENA AS SEATTLE’S ‘MIGHTY MOUSE’ JOHNSON DEFENDS HIS TITLE ON SATURDAY, JULY 27
 
 TICKETS FOR UFC® on FOX: JOHNSON vs. MORAGA
ON SALE FRIDAY, MAY 17
Inaugural UFC® flyweight champion Demetrious “Mighty Mouse” Johnson will make his second title defense against surging contender John Moraga on Saturday, July 27 when the UFC heads back to KeyArena in Seattle, Wash.

At only 26 years old, Johnson earned the division’s title last September with a win over Joseph Benavidez. Following a unanimous decision victory over John Dodson in January, he’s now set to take on Moraga, a two-time NCAA wrestling All-American at Arizona State University. The 29-year-old is currently riding a seven-fight win streak.

 “Demetrious Johnson will defend the flyweight title in front of his hometown fans in Seattle, as he battles 12-1 contender John Moraga on July 27 at KeyArena,” UFC President Dana White said. “DJ has incredible speed and powerful takedowns, while Moraga is slick on the ground and was a standout wrestler at Arizona State. In addition to the main event, we’ve got Rory MacDonald vs. Jake Ellenberger, Robbie Lawler vs. Tarec Saffiedine and Miesha Tate vs. Liz Carmouche. This is a great card!”

Additional bouts:

•    Canadian welterweight contender Rory MacDonald (3) vs. heavy-handed knockout artist Jake Ellenberger (4)
•    Longtime MMA veteran Robbie Lawler (9) battling former Strikeforce® welterweight champ Tarec Saffiedine (8)
•    Former Strikeforce women’s bantamweight champ and Washington’s own Miesha Tate (3) taking on former title contender Liz Carmouche (5)
*Rankings in parentheses as of 5/6/13

The evening’s action also includes five lightweight bouts featuring Spokane’s Michael Chiesa against Reza Madadi, Strikeforce veteran Bobby Green vs. Team Alpha Male’s Danny Castillo, The Ultimate Fighter® season six winner Mac Danzig taking on crowd-favorite Melvin Guillard, a clash of UFC mainstays between Yves Edwards and Spencer Fisher and Aaron Riley vs. Justin Salas. Also on the card, Brendan Schaub meets Matt Mitrione in a heavyweight tilt, while Julie Kedzie and Germaine de Randamie square off in a women’s bantamweight bout. Tukwila’s Trevor Smith is also set to make his UFC middleweight debut against veteran Ed Herman.
