Demetrious Johnson vs. Ali Bagautinov Headlining UFC 174

In the newly announced main event for UFC 174 in Vancouver, flyweight king Demetrious Johnson will ho face to face for the title against Ali Bagautinov. UFC officials confirmed the news to sources after an initial report was leaked.

Johnson has quickly become one of the top pound-for-pound fighters in the sport after being a top 10 fighter competing at bantamweight before dropping down to a more natural weight class where he’s been the only champion the division has ever known. Russian native Ali Bagautinov is still undefeated since joining the UFC in 2013. Bagautinov made a quick rise through the ranks, winning three fights in a row including victories over Tim Elliott and John Lineker in his last bout in February.

Now Bagautinov will try to keep his momentum going when he faces Johnson in June in the new main event for the UFC’s return to Vancouver on June 14.
