UFC on Fox 8: Johnson vs Moraga Live Odds

UFC on Fox: Johnson vs. Moraga was a mixed martial arts event held on July 27, 2013 at the Key Arena in Seattle, Washington.The event was broadcast live on FX and Fox.

The main event was a UFC Flyweight Championship bout between champion Demetrious Johnson and top contender John Moraga.

The pairing was originally expected to take place on April 13, 2013 at The Ultimate Fighter 17 Finale. However, Johnson was forced out of the bout with an injury and Moraga was pulled from that event as well.

Demetrious Johnson successfully defended his UFC flyweight title with a submission win over challenger John Moraga at UFC on FOX 8 in Seattle, Washington.

The challenger tried to use his height, reach and power advantages, but the ring savvy and quickness of the champion proved too much.

Demetrious Johnson vs John Moraga:

Round 5: Johnson’s nose is still bleeding as he leaves his corner for the final round. He moves around in front of his challenger for 40 seconds before committing to a takedown and flooring Moraga in the center of the cage. Moraga gets up, is dumped back to the canvas and goes to his knees in an attempt to stand again. Johnson latches on to the challenger’s head and right arm in north-south position, possibly looking for a brabo or anaconda choke, but Moraga powers up.

Johnson hits another takedown, this time with about three minutes left in the fight. Johnson leans left to right in side-control and drops stapling elbows on Moraga’s face. Now working in the opposite direction, Johnson tries once again for a kimura. Instead of finishing there, Johnson steps over Moraga’s head and stretches out for an armbar on the right side.

With both of his arms under Johnson’s control, Moraga verbally submits and referee Herb Dean waves this one off.
