ufc 174

We recently learned that Tyron Woodley will face Rory MacDonald at UFC 174 this June.

Many wondered whether that welterweight bout would be the main or co-main event. Now we have our answer.

SportsNet out of Canada is reporting that UFC flyweight champion Demetrious Johnson will defend his title against Ali Bagautinov in the main event of the June 14 card from Rogers Arena in Vancouver. The UFC’s official Canadian Twitter account confirmed the fight plans.

Johnson (19-2-1) has made three previous title defenses, besting John Dodson, John Moraga and Joseph Benavidez. His latest, over Benavidez, was a first round knockout.

Bagautinov (13-2) has won each of his first three UFC bouts, including a decision over John Lineker.

Below is what the current card looks like:
