A new flyweight bout has been added to the UFC’s ninth event on FOX. UFC officials confirmed that former number one contender John Moraga will take on Darren Uyenoyama in a bout that will most likely appear on the undercard. Moraga was riding a seven fight win streak when he fought current Flyweight Champion Demetrious Johnson at the last FOX card in Seattle. Uyenoyama also fought on the last FOX card where he fell short against current number one contender Joseph Benavidez.
UFC On FOX 9 is scheduled for December 14, 2013 at the Sleep Train Arena in Sacramento, California. In the main event, UFC Lightweight Champion Anthony Pettis will be putting the title on the line against Josh Thomson in a five round bout. In the co-main event, former WEC Featherweight Champion Urijah Faber will take on Michael ‘Mayday’ McDonald.
