Some may be aiming for Cody Garbrandt’s recent career slump, Brandon Moreno I took another route.
UFC flyweight champions have recently been paying attention to Garbrandt. Former UFC bantamweight title holders stopped by Moreno’s division in hopes of renewing his career and launching a campaign for flyweight gold at UFC 269 last month.
Unfortunately for Garbrandt, his flyweight debut was unsuccessful.He was End via TKO According to Kai Kara France in New Zealand.
“I was sad” Moreno told MMA Junkie in Spanish.. “You get hooked on hype as they start all the promotions and promote Cody Garbrandt, and you say,” Hey, he could be something interesting in the department. I begin to believe.
“But then what happened, and you start looking back on your calm mind. It was a tough scene for Cody. He was knocked out at £ 135. His chin was touched. He loses weight – who knows what the brain was like? Then you give him Kai Kara France, and it hits him very hard, and because I already fought him I know that. It wasn’t a good situation for him and it’s sad.
“Of course, in terms of money, the fight against Cody Garbrandt would have been very good, but Kara France did what he had to do, and he looked great.”
Garbrandt conquered the £ 135 title and defeated the legendary Dominick Cruz with a dominant decision victory in 2016. He was undefeated and was only 24 years old. But he then went 1-5 and saw his title dominance and conflict in the UFC diminish.
“He defeated Dominique,” Moreno said. “He lost to TJ Dillashaw twice and then to Pedro Munhos, after which he defeated Raphael Assuncao, who is not the most important part of his career, and lost to Font (and now Kara France). I did.
“It’s so crazy. It shows how cruel the sport is. I love this sport but I realize it’s rough. It’s f * cked. It’s f * cked. It’s ugly. But yeah, I’m not going to beat the guy while he’s down, as he’s now on record to experience a very difficult time. He finds a lot of clarity. I hope that whatever I want to do next will work. “
Moreno doesn’t even know if Garbrandt should keep fighting, considering him as a future opponent. He hopes that whatever the previous champion decides to do, it will work, but Garbrandt can’t ignore the fact that he finished four in the last six battles.
“As for the future, it’s not just talking about £ 125, it’s also talking about his entire career as a mixed martial arts,” Moreno explained. “Is it even healthy for him to keep fighting? He cracked and collapsed in the last fight. It’s dangerous. It can be dangerous to talk about health factors, so he’s with his family. Let’s hope that we will make good decisions for the future. “
