UFC flyweight tourney finals set to headline UFC 152

Joseph Benavidez and Demetrious Johnson will get something even better than they had hoped.

Both Benavidez and Johnson were wishing to be part of an upcoming pay-per-view as they compete for the UFC flyweight title.

Well, the two will headline a card, as the UFC recently confirmed the Benavidez-Johnson flyweight tournament final will serve as the main event for UFC 152 in Toronto on September 22.

Both advanced with victories in the semifinals, though it took “Mighty Mouse” a second try to do away with Ian McCall. Benavidez, meanwhile, has waited on the sidelines since downing Yasihiro Urushitani.

These two join a card that includes the recently-announced Brian Stann vs. Michael Bisping, and a returning BJ Penn to take on Rory MacDonald.

MMA Training Take: Good for Benavidez and Johnson to earn the trust of the UFC brass to be able to sell a big-time event like a pay-per-view. This fight should be exciting for as long as it goes, and there are several big names to help the two promote the fight..
