Where Brandon Moreno returns to fight in his country as undefeated champion. Two of the greatest mixed martial arts fighters (MMA) make it to the UFC’s main event on their return to Mexico City. Where Brandon Moreno will face Flyweight Sergio Pettis in a 5-round fight. Brandon from Entram Gym Tijuana B. C. has been undefeated for 5 years thanks to his training with MMA guru professor Raúl Arvizu, This Saturday Moreno will fight for the first time in Mexico since 2012.

This will be the second UFC event in 2017 led by 125-pound fighters, and Moreno becomes just the second fighter born and raised in Mexico alongside Yair Rodriguez leading a UFC event. In the Co-main event we have the spectacular Alexa Grasso of Lobo Gym Guadalajara. Who after her defeat against Felice Herrig has trained intensely, after one tremendous victory and one defeat, Grasso will return to the octagon to fight with all her might against Randa Marcos, theres no doubt that whenever Alexa fights, we know it will be a spectacular night.UFC_Mexico_Pettis_Moreno (1)

Martin Bravo and Alejandro El Diablito Pérez are also on the main board; Bravo will face the Peruvian fighter Humberto Bandenay. On the other hand El Diablito will face Andre Soukhamthath, who after his last draw with Albert Morales we hope to see the full intensity of his blows, and why not? A good KO.

Another Mexican fighter that we are anxious to see fighting in the preliminar fights this Saturday is Jose Alberto “Teco” Quiñones, from Zacatecas just like his brother Cristian “Taylon” Quiñones, they both entered in the mixed martial arts world in the adolescence. This would be Teco’s fourth UFC fight, after his last two victories, and his only loss being against the winner of the ultimate fighter Alejandro el Diablito Pérez. Teco brings the power of the Malilla to the octagon against Chile’s Diego Rivas, who is undefeated after 7 fights. And he plans to show him what Mexican fighters are made of.

We could not miss mentioning another fighter from Entram Gym Tijuana who will be in the preliminary fights, Henry Bure Briones, who unlike the Teco met mixed martial arts at age 26, when he began to train with Professor Arvizu. Today at the age of 36 he is still in perfect physical condition and after two defeats comes bitting back with everything  he´s got to give the fight of his life.

Finally Alvaro Herrera, participant of The Ultimate Fighter 2, will fight against Jordan Rinaldi, an American that is a little more experienced than him, which will not be problem for the Mexican, as he comes more prepared than ever.

You can´t miss one of the most exciting billboards of the year !!
