Reis (22-8) is currently ranked sixth in the UFC's 125-pound division. He's riding a losing skid since his April 2017 championship opportunity against the aforementioned Johnson, as he lost to Henry Cejudo last September at UFC 215. Reis has struggled against fellow top-10 talent, as he also lost to Jussier Formiga back in 2015.

Moraga (18-6) met the same misfortune following his 2013 bout with Johnson, although he won three of his next four, he'd then drop three in a row. He's since rebounded and is on a two fight winning streak that saw him earn Performance of the Night honors in his UFC 216 knockout over Magomed Bibulatov.
