Mighty Mouse Defends Title in UFC 177 Co-Main

Tickets go on sale for UFC 177 on Wednesday...
UFC 177 in Sacramento now has a co-main event, as Demetrious "Mighty Mouse" Johnson defends his UFC flyweight title against Chris "Kamikaze" Cariaso, making the August 30 event a championship doubleheader, headlined by the rematch between bantamweight titleholder TJ Dillashaw and Renan Barao.

Currently ranked number four on the pound-for-pound list, UFC flyweight champion Johnson - the only 125-pound titleholder in the promotion's history - has successfully defended his crown four times, most recently shutting out Ali Bagautinov over five rounds at UFC 174 in June.

Northern California's own Cariaso is a WEC veteran who went on to make his mark in the UFC to the tune of seven Octagon victories, including three straight over Iliarde Santos, Danny Martinez, and Louis Smolka.
