UFC Flyweight Champion Brandon Moreno Answered questions about what the Mexican star could do next at the UFC Media Ranch.
Moreno said he is aiming for a return later this year.
“I want to fight in November. I think November is a good month for me,” Moreno said. “Now I have too much responsibility for the media. I went to Mexico City. I’m here with you. So there’s a lot to do.
“But hopefully we can finish all of this in July and the next day. [in] August I can start going to the gym more, get well again and prepare for the next fight. “
Moreno also talked about who his next opponent is.He thought about another fight Daveson Figueiredo..
“I don’t know the next name. There are many possibilities you know. I think it’s clear that Figueiredo has lost the last one and wants the next one,” Moreno laughs. It was. “But man. In the last fight, I dominated him, since the first few minutes of the first round I dominated him. Blow, fight, wrestling. So obviously I fight him again Open that, but I think he needs to fight someone again [else].. “
Moreno said another option for his next fight could be a former UFC bantamweight champion. 5th place bantam weight Cody Garbrandt..
“Cody Garbrandt wants to come to this division. It’s a big fight because I know he’s not the best part of his career, but he’s a good name.” Moreno said. “He’s a former champion. There’s a really good brand behind him. He’s an option.”
Moreno then nominated valuable candidates within the sector who could emerge as challengers for the 125-pound belt and expressed his thoughts on the flyweight landscape.
After all, for Moreno, the name doesn’t matter until the next person. He needs someone ready for November.
“Battle between [Alexandre] With Pantha [Brandon] Loyval may be possible, “Moreno said. “Obviously Askar Askarov. But he had an injury on his right hand and would go out like five or six months, so I don’t know what happened to him.
“Now I’m thinking of going to the gym again and getting ready for October and November. I think November is better. So I don’t care about the guy by name. In that month I just want to fight. “
