UFC Fight Night: Moreno vs. Royval 2

Their first encounter back in November 2020 was a whirlwind of action, packed into a short but sweet bout. They traded blows on the feet, with Moreno gradually asserting control on the ground. Then, with just one second left in the opening round, disaster struck for Royval. His shoulder popped, leaving him vulnerable to Moreno’s fight-ending ground and pound. This time around, both fighters are coming off title fights, hungry to prove themselves and climb back into contention.

Moreno’s 2020 victory over Royval ignited a whirlwind journey for the Mexican fighter. He secured a title shot, embarking on a thrilling saga with Deiveson Figueiredo. Moreno tasted championship glory twice, only to lose and reclaim the belt before ultimately falling to Alexandre Pantoja.

Meanwhile, Royval’s path took a different turn. Following his initial defeat to Moreno, he stumbled against Pantoja but bounced back with three decisive wins, earning a rematch with Pantoja – this time for the flyweight title. Unfortunately, lightning didn’t strike twice for Royval, and he fell short once again.

Now, fate brings them together once more, and the rematch promises to be even more intense. Both Moreno and Royval are coming off losses to Pantoja, eager to prove themselves and climb back into title contention.
