Brandon Moreno has revealed that there is a possibility of a Mexico City event in September, which will showcase all present-day Mexican champions in the UFC. The event could also feature the newly crowned women’s flyweight champion, Alexa Grasso, and interim featherweight champion, Yair Rodriguez.
According to Brandon Moreno, this event would be a great opportunity to showcase the talents of Mexican fighters and provide a platform for them to connect with fans in their home country.
Moreno, who himself is the first Mexican-born UFC champion, expressed his excitement for this potential event and hopes that it will come to fruition.
‘The Assassin Baby’ recently appeared on The Schmo and also discussed the future possibilities of fighting Alexandre Pantoja in his home country.
The Mexican native stated:
“It’s crazy how Mexico are making history with three champions. I’m so happy for our country, we’re doing an amazing history. I think we have the amazing excuse to talk with the UFC and say like Hey, we need to do something huge in in Mexico hopefully soon hopefully in September.”

In addition to the current champions, the event could also feature other Mexican fighters who are making waves in the UFC, further highlighting the country’s rich talent pool. Fans of the UFC in Mexico can look forward to this exciting event and the chance to witness their favorite fighters in action.
When will Brandon Moreno’s next UFC bout take place?
Brandon Moreno earned his place as the new UFC flyweight champion after an impressive victory over Deiveson Figueiredo at UFC 283, marking the promotion’s first-ever tetralogy bout. With this stunning accomplishment, Moreno’s next move is eagerly anticipated, and many UFC fans are wondering who he will face next in his first title defense of his second reign as champion.
Brandon Moreno has a highly impressive professional mixed martial arts record of 21-6-2, but only three of those losses have occurred in the UFC. Among them is his most recent opponent, Deiveson Figueiredo, whom he has faced four times in total, as well as Sergio Pettis, who now holds the Bellator bantamweight championship.
The third fighter to defeat Moreno in the UFC octagon is none other than Alexandre Pantoja, who currently holds the No.2 rank in the flyweight division. While Pantoja’s three-fight win streak and his spot in the rankings would suggest he deserves a title fight on merit alone, a bout between him and Moreno would have an intriguing backstory.
Given that Pantoja was victorious against Moreno in their previous meeting, the stage is set for a compelling rematch between the two. With both fighters having improved their skills since their last encounter, a title fight would be an excellent opportunity for Moreno to seek revenge and prove his dominance as the UFC flyweight champion.
