Ulysses Gomez Does Sign With UFC, Will Meet John Moraga At UFC On Fox 4

A few days ago, we told you that Ian McCall had pulled out of his UFC on Fox 4 bout with John Moraga and had been replaced by TPF champ Ulysses Gomez. Gomez put the brakes on that by saying he didn't have a UFC contract yet. It turns out that he couldn't say anything about it until he was officially signed, which came the next day. Here's the UFC's official announcement:

Just hours after the bout was announced, Orange County's Ian "Uncle Creepy" McCall was forced out of his UFC on FOX bout with John Moraga due to injury. In his place will be another local flyweight veteran, LA's Ulysses "Useless" Gomez, making his UFC debut.

And Gomez's tweet about it:

sorry for not getting back to everyone sooner. I couldn't officially say anything until the UFC announced it. its true I'm fighting Aug 4th

So, there you go. The flyweights will be scrapping in Los Angeles.
