By FCF Staff
The consensus heading into UFC Fight Night 131 was that a decisive win for either Jimmie Rivera or Marlon Moraes, could deliver a shot at the bantamweight title. Well, after Moraes managed to do just that on Friday, the former WSOF champ says he’ll wait for a title fight.
“I really don’t want any other fight,” Moraes said. “I want to fight for the belt. I’m definitely waiting.”
“…I’m going to go back home and train. 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.”
With Friday’s win, Moraes has now gone 3-1 in the UFC, and his overall record sits at 21-5-1.
