UFC Utica Winner Marlon Moraes Wants Title Shot After KO win


UFC Bantamweight Marlon Moraes needed just 33 seconds of the first round to end the highly built up fight with Jimmie Rivera (21-2 MMA, 5-1 UFC) in the UFC Fight Night Main event in Utica and expects his performance to grant him a title shot against current champ T.J. Dillashaw (15-3 MMA, 11-3 UFC).

He expects the champion to come out of the rematch with ex-champ and rival Cody Garbrandt (11-1 MMA, 6-1 UFC) at UFC 227 in August but doesn't really care whom he meets for the title.All he wants is a title.

“I really don’t want any other fight,” Moraes (21-6-1 MMA, 3-1 UFC) said backstage at Adirondack Bank Center in Utica, N.Y., which hosted the FS1-televised event. “I want to fight for the belt. I’m definitely waiting.”

“I want to be a champion, That’s it.”

“I’m going to go back home and train,” Moraes said. “That was a fight, and like I said before the fight, matchups make fighters. I fought him, and the way I beat him, that was the way somebody who deserves to fight for the title should perform.”
