UFC Utica Winner Marlon Moraes Wants Title Shot After KO win

2/6/2018



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.”
