joseph-benavidez-19.jpgOfficial fighter weigh-ins for “UFC on FOX: Johnson vs. Moraga” are slated for July 26 at KeyArena in Seattle.

The same venue then hosts the following night’s event, which features a flyweight title fight between champion Demetrious Johnson (17-2-1 MMA, 5-1-1 UFC) and challenger John Moraga (13-1 MMA, 2-0 UFC). Also on the card, welterweight contenders Rory MacDonald (14-1 MMA, 5-1 UFC) and Jake Ellenberger (29-6 MMA, 8-2 UFC) meet in the co-main event.

The first fighter steps on the scale at 4 p.m. PT local time, and doors open to the public at 3 p.m. The weigh-ins are free and open to the public.

Prior to the weigh-ins, UFC Fight Club members are invited to a Q&A session with top flyweight contender Joseph Benavidez, who fought Johnson for the UFC’s inaugural 125-pound belt, losing a close split decision. Benavidez has since won two straight with a decision win over Ian McCall and a second-round TKO of Darren Uyenoyama this past April at UFC on FOX 7.

Doors for the Q&A open to Fight Club members at 1 p.m. PT with the Q&A taking place at 2 p.m.

MAIN CARD (FOX, 8 p.m. ET)
