The UFC is gaining popularity in Western Washington; thanks, in part, to a number of stars from right here! One fighter from Pierce County will defend his championship at the UFC on FOX 8 event at KeyArena in Seattle in July. Demetrious Mighty Mouse Johnson is the current UFC Flyweight Champion. He'll square off against John Moraga from Phoenix. But Mighty Mouse is mighty mellow when a title isn't on the line, that may have something to do with the woman he calls his Mighty wife!

Demetrious and his wife Destiny joined guest host Kim Holcomb to talk about the upcoming event, what sparked his interest in mixed martial arts and their other incredible adventure; expecting their first child (the baby's due next month!). Demetrious also shared an incredible story about his mother, while Destiny revealed a surprising fact about her husband that many people may not expect an MMA star to do!

UFC on FOX 8 takes place Saturday, July 27 at KeyArena in Seattle. The action gets underway at Noon. For more information, including the updated fight card, please click here.
