LatinoAthlete.com has the latest on UFC Fight Night 114 thanks to the UFC announcing the upcoming event on Sunday.
Hopefully, Sergio Pettis (15-2) can turn things around after coming off a disappointing week at UFC 211. His challenger Henry Cejudo was canceled the week of the event due to a Cejudo hand injury.
The flyweight bout will have Sergio “The Phenom” Pettis, 23, who is is 6-2 overall in the UFC after winning three consecutive contests. He is going up against Brandon Moreno (14-3), who has proven to be a revelation in the UFC.
The Mexican native Moreno aka ‘The Assassin Baby’ entered TUF 24 as the No. 16 ranked fighter out of 16 and promptly lost a back-and-forth fight to top-seeded Alexandre Pantoja. Since then the 23-year-old MMA fighter has defeated Louis Smolka, Ryan Benoit, and Dustin Ortiz, proving himself as a worthy contender in the 125-pound division.
UFC Fight Night 114 takes place at the Arena Ciudad de Mexico.
