Tom Wright, who leads the Canada division of the UFC, promised several fights would be announced next week for UFC 152 in Toronto. Well, it appears that the company didn't want to wait that long.
The main event was confirmed Friday night, as Joseph Benavidez and Demetrious Johnson will meet in the finals of the UFC flyweight tournament. The winner will become the first flyweight champion on September 22.
Benavidez defeated Yasuhiro Urushitani in his semifinal, while Johnson was forced to rematch Ian McCall after a scoring error ended their bout in a draw. Johnson earned the victory, moving into the finals.
