Aaron Riley vs. Justin Salas Added to UFC on FOX 8

 

 

The UFC announced Thursday night the addition of a lightweight fight between Aaron Riley and Justin Salas to the card for UFC on FOX 8 slated for July 27.

 

For Riley (30-13-1) this fight will mark a long-awaited return to action after suffering a broken jaw in the first round of his September 2011 fight with Tony Ferguson.  More injuries kept 16-year veteran from making his return sooner.

 

Justin Salas (10-4) is coming off a June 2012 loss to Tim Means, a fight that ended his six-fight win streak.

 

The fight is expected to take place on the event’s preliminary card, which will air partly on FX and on Facebook.  UFC on FOX 8 will headline the flyweight championship fight between John Moraga and current champ Demetrious “Mighty Mouse” Johnson.  The event will take place at the KeyArena in Seattle, WA.
