On Monday night, the UFC announced a flyweight matchup between John Moraga and Jussier ‘Formiga’ da Silva has officially been added to UFC on FOX 13 in Phoenix.

Moraga (15-3), a former wrestler out of Arizona State University, is coming off a very impressive second round submission victory over the highly touted Justin Scoggins at UFC Fight Night 50 earlier this month. Prior to this win he suffered TKO loss to John Dodson at UFC Fight Night 42 in June. He enters this bout with a UFC record of 4-2, with three of them ending in stoppage.

Formiga (17-3), a Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu specialist, is coming off a unanimous decision over Zach Mackovsky at UFC Fight Night 47 in August. Prior to this win he earned a controversial submission win over MMA veteran Scott Jorgenson back in March. He enters the bout with a UFC record of 3-2.

UFC on FOX 13 is currently scheduled to take place on Dec. 13 at US Airways Center in downtown Phoenix. A heavyweight matchup between former champion Junior dos Santos and Stipe Miocic is set to headline the event.
