The UFC will come one step closer to crowning another title-contender in the company’s still-developing flyweight division next month when John Moraga mixes it up with Chris Cariaso at UFC 155. Both men will enter the bout looking to extend already-solid winning streaks and are among the top 125ers out there.
UFC officials have confirmed the clash’s addition to the card. The December 8 event features a headlining tilt between heavyweight champ Junior dos Santos and Cain Velasquez as well as match-ups between Joe Lauzon-Jim Miller, Yushin Okami-Alan Belcher, and Forrest Griffin-Phil Davis.
Moraga picked up an opening round knockout over Ulysses Gomez this past August, his sixth straight victory and first inside the Octagon. He holds an overall record of 12-1 with his only loss coming to the current #1 flyweight contender, John Dodson.
The 14-3 Cariaso has notched wins in his last three tilts including decisions over Josh Ferguson and Takeya Mizugaki.
