Both Brandon Moreno and Deiveson Figueiredo did a lot for the UFC and provided us with many spectacles. The rivalry between Moreno and Pantoja has ended, and Moreno will face Alexandre Pantoja next. In an interview with the media, Moreno confirmed that he is happy to fight Pantoja.
The Mexican was tired of fighting with Figuerido and needed a new challenge. He has, however, repeatedly stated that he respects his former opponent tremendously. “Let’s go!,” Moreno said. “I always answer the same.
I’m very grateful with Deiveson for what we did in the UFC and MMA, for our careers and the history of the sport, but of course, I feel happy at the same time to fight with another guy. I felt this kinda fresh air when I fought Kai Kara-France in Dallas and this one is the same.
I feel very good”.
Moreno already had the opportunity to fight Pantoja before, and he lost both times. Many criticize him for not using trash talk. However, Moreno is such a profile of a fighter who heals his frustrations in the ring.
His goal is not to appear brave through social media “Sorry if I’m not this guy who talks s* on social media or tries to make some drama, but at the end that works for me,” Moreno said. “The people love what I’m doing because it’s real, it’s natural.
It’s nothing personal against Pantoja." The Mexican fighter knows his opponent very well. Two defeats in the match with him certainly give him additional motivation to show his qualities. “For sure, there’s a competitive part of myself knowing he beat me twice in the past.
It gives me a different flavor. But at the same time, I’m thinking about the opportunity, if you beat Alexandre Pantoja at the T-Mobile Arena, International Fight Week – man, your legacy. I’m just very focused on that last goal, to win my second, first title defense”.
