At this moment in time, Brandon Moreno is on top of the world. He’s a two-time undisputed flyweight champion after finally settling his feud with Deiveson Figueiredo, and he’s set to return to action next month. When he does so, he’ll put his crown on the line against Alexandre Pantoja.


It’s a bout that many fans and pundits alike are excited to see, given the skillset of both men. In addition to that, it gives us a chance to see Moreno at his best, utilizing some of the best boxing in the UFC.

Between his brilliant chin and boxing ability, it’s not unthinkable that he could head into the squared circle one day – and as per the man himself, that’s exactly what he wants to do.

“I have this, this desire inside of me, like. I want to try to do some boxing in the future. My coach says I can do something nice. I believe in him. So obviously, if they knock me out in the first round and in my first boxing match, I would say something like ‘okay, I tried at least'”.

Moreno looks to the future

The future, as you can imagine, looks pretty bright for Brandon Moreno. He’s one of the biggest combat sports stars in Mexico, he’s the champ, and he’s only 29 years old. If he can continue to improve with each and every passing performance, eventually, he’ll clean out the division at 125 pounds.

If that happens, you’d best believe he’ll take a look at what boxing has to offer.
