Ulysses Gomez vs. John Moraga set for UFC on Fox 4

The UFC on FOX 4 card is no more than a couple weeks away, but changes are still being made. As it has been with other recent cards, injuries have left room for fighters to make debuts, get called back to the UFC after being cut, or to fight more frequently. Both Ulysses Gomez and John Moraga are able to make their debut a bit quicker. A recent injury to former flyweight title contender Ian McCall left an open spot opposite John Moraga on fight card. Ulysses was rumored to be fighting Jussier Da Silva at UFC 153, but will get a chance to debut much sooner.

Moraga trains out of Arizona combat sports, which is also the gym that currently houses Jaime Varner. He has a record of 10-1, and recently held the bantamweight belt in Rage in the Cage.

Ulysses Gomez trains out of Cobra Kai with Marc Laimon in Las Vegas; the gym he helped create with Laimon back in 2004. Gomez is another fighter who has jumped around weight classes. He originally was the champion at flyweight in Tachi Palace fights, but lost the belt to current holder Darrell Montague. He then jumped to 135 where he was able to win another belt in Tachi, but the call up to the UFC has lead him to drop back down to 125.
