Fight Preview

The Ultimate Fighting Championship offers an unconventional method of fighting. While other sports use different approaches to settle their competitions, UFC fighters typically face off with each other until one athlete remains standing – as will happen during this Saturday night’s co-main event between flyweight champion Brandon Moreno and Alexandre Pantoja at UFC 290. This fight will take place at T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas on Saturday July 7th.
Even though it required 4 battles, Moreno eventually showed Deiveson Figueiredo that he was the superior fighter. Over the course of his career, he’s amassed a very impressive resume, but Pantoja is still the crucial piece. If their initial encounter on The Ultimate Fighter is taken into account, Pantoja currently has a 2-0 advantage against the Mexican champ. Though the Brazilian has 3 straight victories over top-tier opposition, it wasn’t only his background that got him this title shot.
In the initial 2 battles, Pantoja was successful in intimidating Moreno. This was due to a number of variables, including the Brazilian’s inherently aggressive striking style, his physicality, his skill in jiu-jitsu, and each man’s relative levels of experience. Since their past fight 5 years ago, a lot has transpired. Moreno is not as uneasy in a firefight, and he is also no longer a 24-year-old still growing. He ought to be able to maintain his position much better, which will significantly alter the situation.

Both fighters are known for their skill in both striking and grappling, yet possess different styles which create a dynamic fight matchup. Pantoja tends to take an all-out offensive approach with his expert jiu-jitsu while Brazilian brawler can often engage in brutal exchanges that could land one final punch from his hands.
Moreno is more of a counter puncher. He boasts an effective jab that can be used to stem his opponent’s advances and cut them off quickly. Additionally, Moreno is now much more adept in firefights than when he was younger, which will increase his odds against Brazil’s aggressive fighter.
