With the flyweight title fight getting scrapped after Johnson got injured, the UFC has booked a new main event.
Demetrious Johnson suffered an injury which led to the scrapping of the flyweight title fight at the live TUF 17 Finale. UFC officials then was forced to find a new headliner for the card, and while top female contenders Miesha Tate and Cat Zingano tried to make their case to be bumped up to the main event, the UFC decided to go with two other bantamweights instead.
Faber is coming off a very impressive submission victory over Ivan Menjivar at UFC 157, and he will have a relatively quick turn around when he guns for another title shot as he gets back in the cage this April. Scott Jorgensen on the other hand, last competed at UFC on FOX 5 last December, and will look to make it two in a row with a win over the former WEC kingpin.
