Flyweight contenders Reis and Moraga meet in AZ

 

Eager to fight in his home state of Arizona, Phoenix native John Moraga got his wish, as he will face Wilson Reis in a clash of flyweight contenders on Apr. 14 at the Gila River Arena in Glendale.

The UFC on FOX event is headlined by the lightweight battle between Dustin Poirier and Justin Gaethje.

Winner of two in a row, the No. 10-ranked Moraga is coming off perhaps his most impressive UFC win to date, as he scored Performance of the Night honors for his first-round knockout of hot prospect Magomed Bibulatov. Now he will look to climb back into the title picture when he faces the No. 6-ranked Reis, another former world title challenger hoping that a victory in April will kickstart his drive back to the top of the division.
