An article of facts about Saturday's UFC on FOX 8: Johnson vs. Moraga event in Seattle, Washington.

There are 30 facts in the full article, but here are the ones that are best/most interesting, in my opinion of course.

2. Demetrious Johnson is one of three fighters in UFC history (Michihiro Omigawa, Benson Henderson) to start his career in the Octagon with seven-straight decisions.

9. Mac Danzig (5-6 UFC) is one of two (Jonathan Brookins) of the 21 active The Ultimate Fighter (TUF) reality show winners with a sub .500 record in the Octagon.

16. Robbie Lawler's last 12 victories have come by (technical) knockout or submission. "Ruthless" has not won a fight by decision since a Nov. 21, 2003 win over Chris Lytle at UFC 45.

22. Yves Edwards will compete in his 17th UFC lightweight bout, the most of any fighter in UFC history.

    I LOL'd about number 2.

    Robbie Lawler comes to bang.

    Props to Yves for being able to stick around for so long.

    He caught the ban hammer bro.

    Omigawa was 1-6 in the UFC. I'm surprised he had so many opportunities.

    32. First time a ufc main event is the least anticipated fight on the card.


    Mighty Mouse is a boring point fighter, and will be the reason his weight class gets eliminated from the ufc. Nobody cares if he wins or loses.

    Ok I'm looking on the bright side here and trying to turn lemons into lemonade-

    Isn't Moraga supposed to be a power puncher? Hopefully MM gets KOd. Would be hilarious.

    Rory vs Ellen is a solid scrap. Nuff said

    Lawler always comes to bang as mentioned in this thread.

    Chick fights have been good so far and Carmoosh is going to be out for Blood after she screwed up that back position against Rousey. I expect a first round finish.

    Danzig/Guillard and Yves/Cruickshank should be good fights.

    I've always liked Short Fuse (he doesn't make it easy at times) so I'm excited to see him back in the big show.

    KEDZIE! Her fight with Meisha was action packed and I expect her to come out all fired up in her UFC debut.

    Not the best card sure... but there's some silver lining to be had.
