UFC on FOX 8 finally has a headliner, as UFC flyweight champion Demetrious Johnson (17-2-1 MMA, 5-1-1 UFC) meets challenger John Moraga (12-1 MMA, 2-0 UFC).

Additionally, a women's bout between Liz Carmouche (8-3 MMA, 0-1 UFC) and Miesha Tate (13-4 MMA, 0-1 UFC) has also been added to the event and will take place on the evening's main card.

The additions were first reported by FOXSports.com and later confirmed by UFC officials.

UFC on FOX 8 takes place July 27 at Seattle's KeyArena. The evening's main card airs on FOX.

This is great news for me. Mainly b/c I plan on attending UFC 164 in Milwaukee and I really don't want to see Johnson vs. Moraga as the main event. Don't get me wrong, I love watching Mighty Mouse and Moraga but I can't get hyped to see this fight in person so I'm happy that it's taking place in Seattle.

it was a great moment in the sport when they first made the Fox deal but the whole thing is losing steam fast. I'm a fairly big fan of mma and watch almost all UFC, Bellator, AXS, etc.......and I still wouldn't notice Moraga if he walked by me on the street.

It's just a bad main event in terms of star power, there's no other way to say it.

This main card is STACKED!
Johnson vs Moraga should be a sick fight! Moraga's pretty unknown but the kid has skills and I think he is deffs capable of pulling off the upset

I'd rather Jones vs. Gus but you're probably right.
