Chris Cariaso at WEC 49The end-of-year UFC 155 fight card is filing to the brim with UFC officials recently adding a battle between two Top 10 flyweights.

Chris Cariaso and John Moraga have verbally agreed to throw down on Dec. 29 at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas.

Cariaso is currently 14-3 with his only recent slip being a split decision loss to bantamweight contender Michael McDonald four fights ago. He has since streaked to three consecutive victories and quickly become someone to watch in the flyweight division.

He’ll battle Moraga (12-1) for that next step towards title contention in the 125-pound division.

Moraga – the Rage in the Cage bantamweight champion – debuted in the UFC with an impressive first-round knockout victory over highly touted veteran Ulysses Gomez at UFC on Fox 4 in August.

UFC heavyweight champion Junior dos Santos puts his belt on the line in a rematch with Cain Velasquez in the UFC 155 main event.
