Johnson injured, out of April title bout
An injury has forced UFC flyweight champion Demetrious Johnson out of his scheduled title defense on April 13, according to a report by Ariel Helwani on Tuesday’s UFC Tonight.
Johnson was expected to fight John Moraga on the date, at The Ultimate Fighter 17 Finale in Las Vegas.
It would have been a quick turnaround for Johnson, who went five rounds in a unanimous decision win over John Dodson at UFC on FOX 6 on Jan. 26. That win marked his first successful title defense after capturing the belt last September.
