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.
