UFC on FOX 8 To Be Held In Seattle, Johnson Wants Main Event Slot

The UFC has announced its eighth FOX show will be held at Key Arena in Seattle, Washington on July 27th.  Washington native and UFC flyweight champion Demetrious Johnson had expressed his desire to headline this event.  Johnson recently suffered a torn labrum and underwent successful surgery earlier this month. If recovery goes well the champ should be out of action for three months giving him time to prepare for a late July return. Johnson was scheduled to fight John Moraga at the TUF 17 Finale and I am sure that is the fight the UFC will make for Mighty Mouse when he is able to return.
