Read on for post-fight bonus and press conference information for UFC on FOX 8: Johnson vs. Moraga.
With the sun still shining in Seattle, seven fighters attended the UFC on FOX post-fight press conference alongside UFC president Dana White. In attendance were flyweight champion Demetrious Johnson and challenger John Moraga; welterweight victor Rory MacDonald and challenger Jake Ellenberger; and finishers in their FOX fights that day Robbie Lawler, Liz Carmouche and Jorge Masvidal.
