ufc 186

Officials announced a second title fight for UFC 186, pairing flyweight champion Demetrious Johnson against Kyoji Horiguchi.

The April 25 card will take place from Montreal and features a main event between bantamweight champion T.J. Dillashaw and Renan Barao. A previously planned welterweight fight between Rory MacDonald and Hector Lombard has been removed.

Johnson (21-2-1) is the only person to hold the UFC 125-pound title, having defended it five times. His last win was a victory over Chris Cariaso.

Horiguchi (15-1) has won all three of his UFC flyweight bouts, most recently topping Louis Gaudinot.
