The city of Seattle once again played host to the Octagon thanks to the lineup for UFC on FOX 8. Headlined by a flyweight title-fight between lightning-quick champion Demetrious Johnson and aggressive contender John Moraga, the show featured a number of interesting match-ups including undercard efforts from Melvin Guillard-Mac Danzig and Michael Chiesa-Jorge Masvidal.
In the evening’s co-headliner, Rory MacDonald outpointed Jake Ellenberger by picking him apart with jabs and staying away from the heavy-handed grappler’s power. Meanwhile, Johnson earned a submission victory over Moraga after cruising through the bulk of the bout due to speed and technique. The performance marked his fourth straight win at 125 pounds and improved his overall record to 18-2-1.
