Moraga vs Ortiz Promoted to UFC FN 35 Main Card
Thanks to some shuffling due to injury, the flyweight division will be getting some more main card attention. Dustin Ortiz and John Moraga will now be featured on the main card of UFC Fight Night 35.
Ortiz (12-2 MMA, 1-0 UFC), looks to continue his 4-fight winning streak, most recently defeating Jose-Maria Tome last November in Brazil via a 3rd round TKO. Moraga (13-2 MMA, 2-1 UFC), on the other hand, looks to regain some of his momentum after losing his most recent bout, which was a tough-fought 5th round submission loss in a title bid against Demetrious Johnson. Before losing to “Mighty Mouse,” Moraga had racked up two impressive finishes over Chris Cariaso and Ulysses Gomez.
UFC Fight Night 35 takes place on January 15, in Duluth Georgia. It is headlined by a bout between Luke Rockhold and Constantinos Philippou.
