Demetrious Johnson's next UFC flyweight title defence will take place against John Moraga in the TUF 17 Finale main event.

Johnson, who outpointed John Dodson in his last outing, will return to the Octagon on April 13 to meet a man who is red hot in the 125lb division.

Boasting a 13-1 MMA record, he is unbeaten in three years, finishing both his UFC bouts to date. He enters the title showdown off a submission win over Chris Cariaso.

Also confirmed by the UFC is a heavyweight clash between Gabriel Gonzaga and Travis Browne, plus a women's bantamweight contest involving Miesha Tate and Cat Zingano.
