will feature a flyweight title contest pitting reigning champion
Johnson against John Moraga.

Carmouche put a scare into Rousey at UFC 157, trapping the women’s
bantamweight champion in a tight neck crank before eventually
succumbing to an armbar 4:49 into round one of the first female
fight in promotion history. Before falling to Rousey, “Girl-Rilla”
earned back-to-back wins over Ashleigh
Curry and Kaitlin
Young under the Invicta Fighting Championships banner.
Andrade, 21, makes her UFC debut having won nine of her first 11
professional bouts, with all of the Brazilian’s victories coming by
way of knockout, technical knockout or submission. “Bate Estaca” is
2-0 thus far in 2013, earning second-round submission victories
