UFC on FOX 8

Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) today unveiled its first look at the upcoming poster for its UFC on FOX 8 event, which is set to take place at KeyArena in Seattle, Washington, on July 27, 2013.

"Johnson vs. Moraga" will feature a flyweight championship headliner as Demetrious Johnson puts his belt on the line for just the second time when he tangles with top 125-pound contender John Moraga.

Will the layoff from this recent surgery betray him?

In the co-main event, top welterweight prospect Rory MacDonald meets the hard-hitting Jake Ellenberger in what is being pegged as a No. 1 contender bout. Then again, "The Juggernaut" doesn't think "Ares" even belongs in the top 10.

Rounding out the main card will be another 170-pound contest as Tarec Saffiedine makes his Octagon debut against hard-hitting veteran Robbie Lawler while top female contenders Miesha Tate and Liz Carmouche square off in a pivotal bantamweight affair.

Not too shabby.
