UFC on Fox 8 is scheduled for July 27th in the Key Arena in Seattle, WA, and the card is starting to take shape. The main event will see Demetrious Johnson defend his UFC flyweight title against John Moraga, in a bout that was originally scheduled for the TUF 17 Finale. In the co-main,. Jake Ellenberger will look to build on his UFC 158 win over Nate Marquardt when he takes on Canadian standout Rory MacDonald. The bout could have title implications for Ellenberger, but unless Johny Hendricks unseats current champ Georges St. Pierre, it seems unlikely that Rory would accept a title shot with a win.
Also in the welterweight division, two former Strikeforce fighters will meet when Robbie Lawler takes on the last Strikeforce welterweight champion Tarec Saffiedine. Lawler defeated Josh Koscheck in his UFC re-debut, while Saffiedine will be making his official debut on the show. The final main card bout will likely be a ladies battle between Liz Carmouche and Miesha Tate, who are both looking for their first UFC win.
Here's a look at the current card:
