UFC 178: Johnson vs. Cariaso will be held at MGM Grand Garden Arena,  Las Vegas, Nevada on September 27, 2014, 7pm ET.

The Main Event:

Demetrious Johnson will face Chris Cariaso for a 5 round flyweight title fight. It seems to be an easy fight for Demetrious Johnson, but who knows? Who would think that Arlovski could knockout Antonio Silva few days ago. But remember there is a huge difference between heavyweight and a flyweight knockout power.

UFC  president stated that “the problem is that there is no doubt the fight everybody wanted to see would be John Dodson, but he’s hurt,” White told UFC.com. “Ian McCall just fought, Johnson knocked out (Joseph) Benavidez, and he beat John Moraga.” will he was explaining to reporters the reason for Chris Cariaso getting a title shot

“People are going to bitch about Demetrious Johnson no matter who we put him in there against. Eventually, he’ll just have to keep knocking people out left and right, and then he’ll earn his respect.”
