After becoming the first Mexican-born fighter in UFC history, Brandon Moreno was recently honored by that nation’s President, Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador.

Moreno, who won the UFC’s flyweight title last month by submitting Deiveson Figueiredo, recently shared out the social media post below.

Translation via Google Translate:

Thank you for the invitation to the National Palace by the president @lopezobrador 🇲🇽 !! For me it is a great pride to be able to represent and have Mexican mixed martial arts recognized, I am excited to be the spearhead for the new generations in the country

The 27-year-old Moreno (19-5-2) has gone undefeated in seven straight fights
