Video: Watch UFC on FOX 8 headliner John Moraga go from lumps to mice on 'Ultimate Insider'

From taking his lumps in a neighbor's yard to fighting "Mighty Mouse" on FOX, top UFC flyweight John Moraga has done it all -- thanks to a little help from wrestling.

Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) flyweight number one contender John Moraga will challenge Demetrious Johnson for the 125-pound title this Saturday night (July 27, 2013) in the main event of UFC on FOX 8, which takes place at KeyArena in Seattle, Washington.

Find out what makes him so dangerous in our complete fighter breakdown here.

Moraga (13-1) may not be a household name (yet), but he's certainly known by his peers, terrorizing the 125-pound ranks and finishing off his first two opponents inside the Octagon. In fact, the Arizonian hasn't tasted defeat since 2010, when he lost a unanimous decision to fellow contender John Dodson.

He's earned his spot.

And like his coach said in the above "Ultimate Insider" video, his pupil's greatest strength is the fact that he never gives up and above all, he never quits. He'll need every bit of that intestinal fortitude if he expects to go a full 25 minutes against "Mighty Mouse" this weekend in "Emerald City."

Anyone think he can pull it off?
