The show is headlined by UFC Flyweight Champion Demetrious Johnson vs. John Moraga while top welterweights Rory MacDonald and Jake Ellenberger assume the co-main role.

After a quick Q&A with Josh on his martial arts background and training under Jon Jones on TUF, we touch on each of the twelve pairings slated for the Fox 8 lineup and conclude with predictions. Remember to subscribe to the MMA Nation channel on YouTube and, most importantly, that Josh only appears more handsome because my screen is excessively grainy.
