Demetrious Johnson-John Moraga Set For TUF 17 Finale For UFC Flyweight Title

UFC flyweight champion Demetrious Johnson will face John Moraga this coming April, as UFC officials have confirmed the two will meet at The Ultimate Fighter 17 Finale.

Johnson (17-2-1) improved to 5-1-1 in his UFC career with a recent win over John Dodson in the main event of a card on FOX. He won the belt in late 2012 in a tournament finale with Joseph Benavidez.

Moraga (12-1) is on a seven-fight win streak, including two wins over Ulysses Gomez and Chris Cariaso since joining the promotion.

Heavyweights Gabriel Gonzaga and Travis Browne were also announced earlier in the day for the event.
