Willie Gates is bound to make the most out of the opportunity that he has been afforded.
John Moraga was booked to fight Jussier Formiga at UFC on FOX 13 in Phoenix on December 13, but since Formiga injured his knee, Willie Gates has been named as the replacement. The news was confirmed by MMAFighting.com today.
Gates will make his UFC debut in the match after he scored an 83-second TKO win over Hector Sandoval to win the Techi Palace Fights 125-pound title on November 6. He has won five fights in a row with a first-round finish in all.
