Demetrious Johnson vs. John Moraga title fight off due to Johnson injury

Demetrious Johnson vs. John Moraga title fight off due to Johnson injury (UPDATED)
By Mookie Alexander on Feb 26, 8:42p

A planned April 13th flyweight title fight between champion Demetrious Johnson and John Moraga is now off because of an injury to Mighty Mouse.

The UFC booked flyweight champion Demetrious Johnson against John Moraga to headline The Ultimate Fighter 17 Finale in Las Vegas, marking the first time a TUF Finale card had ever hosted a title match. Unfortunately the status of the main event doesn't look good, and according to MMA Junkie and Keith Kizer, the bout may not happen on April 13th:

NSAC Executive Director Keith Kizer on Tuesday told ( that a UFC official informed him that the bout may not happen. Further details on the bout's status were unavailable.

MMA Junkie's Steven Marocco said on Twitter that an injury is the likely reason for this fight being in limbo:

All fans can do right now is hope for the best and that the injury bug isn't the cause of losing the TUF 17 Finale main event.

UPDATE: Unfortunately, Mighty Mouse is injured and the title fight is off. A new main event will be announced soon.

Good, it was a joke to have a guy go from opening Fuel and Facebook cards to a title.
