UFC on Fox 8 fight card: Johnson vs. Moraga

David Banks-USA TODAY Sports

A look at the current UFC on Fox 8 card for July 27th, which has gone through some changes recently.

UFC on Fox 8 is scheduled for July 27th in the Key Arena in Seattle, WA, and the card is pretty much full now. 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.

There have been some changes the other two fights scheduled for the main card though. Robbie Lawler will now take on replacement Siyar Bahadurzada, as Tarec Saffiedine is out with an injury. The final main card bout was supposed to be Miesha Tate vs. Liz Carmouche, but Tate is on TUF 18 now and was replaced by Jessica Andrade. You'd have to expect that the bout is moved to the prelims now, and something else is moved up.
