Moreno eager for UFC comeback, eyes title eliminator against Albazi
Brandon Moreno, fully recovered and impatient, is pushing for his UFC return, eyeing a title eliminator bout against Amir Albazi.
Brandon Moreno, once sidelined by a hand injury, is now ready to re-enter the octagon. After his loss to Alexandre Pantoja at UFC 290, Moreno’s recovery has been complete for some time. Initially aiming for a December fight, he finds himself still waiting for a confirmed date. Moreno sees Amir Albazi as the logical next opponent, with the winner potentially fighting for the title.
Ranked No. 3 in the USA TODAY Sports/MMA Junkie flyweight rankings, Moreno expresses frustration over the delay. Despite his eagerness to fight as early as December, no official match has been set. Rumors hint at UFC’s possible return to Mexico, but Moreno, prioritizing his career over location, is more focused on erasing the bitterness of his last defeat and reclaiming his champion status.
“I’m healthy and waiting for a fight. I’ve been using this time to improve myself,” Moreno states, determined to overcome recent setbacks. “I’ve been the champion before, and I know I can be again. I just have to stay calm, focused, and ready for the future.”
Moreno, poised for his comeback, awaits the official word from UFC, with his sights set on reclaiming the title.
Do you think Moreno’s anticipated matchup with Albazi will pave his way back to the championship?
