Demetrious Johnson Forced Out OF TUF 17 Finale With Torn Labrum

UFC flyweight champion Demetrious Johnson suffered a torn labrum, forcing his removal from a planned title match with John Moraga in April.

Johnson’s coach, Matt Hume, confirmed the injury during an appearance on Inside MMA Friday night.

“Mighty Mouse” became the first-ever UFC flyweight champ when he defeated Joseph Benavidez last year. He successfully defended his title against John Dodson in January.

The card will now feature a main event between Urijah Faber and Scott Jorgensen.
