As the former two-time UFC flyweight king, we have decided to take a deep dive into the MMA career of Brandon Moreno. Read on to find out more about Brandon Moreno’s record in MMA, previous fights, his UFC title record and how many knockouts he has under his belt.

Brandon Moreno Record

Moreno’s career has been nothing short of magnificent to date. The Mexican is the former UFC Featherweight Champion, having become a two-time world champion after defeating Deiveson Figueiredo for the second time in their fourth bout in early 2023.

‘The Assassin Baby’ is without a doubt one of the most skilful fighters at flyweight, of that there is no question. His career up to now has been sensational, and he still has some big nights ahead of him. Especially if he can win back the 125-pound title at some stage.

As previously mentioned, Brandon Moreno made his professional MMA debut over a decade ago now. He was on a UWC Mexico 9.5 card where he made the perfect start to his career by winning via submission. Moreno then had 13 more fights as a pro MMA fighter before signing a deal with the UFC.

Brandon Moreno had a decent start to his tenure in the UFC. He won his first three straight fights in the UFC, including two submissions. However, he suffered back-to-back defeats to Sergio Pettis and Alexandre Pantoja, and was cut from the UFC roster.

That didn’t phase Moreno by any means. He won the LFA Flyweight Championship, before bouncing back into the UFC after being given another chance by President Dana White. He drew his first fight back with Askar Askarov, before winning three consecutive fights and getting his shot at UFC gold.

His first fight against Deiveson Figueiredo was next for the UFC Flyweight Title. The fight was deemed a draw, so the pair had an immediate rematch next at UFC 263 in June 2021. This time, Moreno’s dreams became a reality as he defeat the Brazilian via submission, becoming the undisputed UFC Flyweight Champion.

However, Figueiredo got his revenge next time, beating ‘The Assassin Baby’ by decision at UFC 270. Moreno then knocked out Kai Kara-France in their rematch at UFC 277 in July 2022, before throwing down with Figueiredo for a fourth time in early 2023.

This time, Moreno ended the epic four-fight battle with his Brazilian counterpart, winning emphatically via TKO in the third round of their bout at UFC 283 in Figueiredo’s hometown of Rio de Janeiro.

Two fights ago, Moreno lost his UFC belt, losing a close decision to Alexandre Pantoja for the second time. There is sure to be a trilogy fight now between Moreno and Pantoja, given how close the fight was and how well both fighters performed at UFC 290 from Las Vegas, Nevada.

Last time out Moreno also got beaten by an incredibly tight split decision. In his rematch with Brandon Royval at UFC Mexico, he was on the wrong end of a razor thin decision. Many people believe Moreno did enough to win the fight, but ultimately it goes down as a loss on his record.

That takes us up to nowwith the Brandon Moreno record. The list of names he has defeated is pretty impressive. Deiveson Figueiredo twice, Kai Kara-France on two occasions, Brandon Royval and Jussie Formiga are just some of the stellar names Moreno has defeated.
