Travel does not scare Thiago Moises

“I respect Mitch a lot, but it was his first fight in the UFC and he lost at the Contender Series, so I had nothing to gain from that fight and he had everything to gain,” Moises said. “So there was a lot of pressure on my shoulders because, like you said, I was supposed to fight Brad Riddell, everyone knows Brad Riddell and everyone was looking forward to that fight. I think it would have was a great fight. Unfortunately he pulled out and I had to fight Mitch so I put a lot of pressure on myself I have to beat this guy and this fight can’t even be close because I can’t do it. to go and win a close decision against Mitch. I have to dominate him and finish him because otherwise I’m going to look bad. So that was my mindset for the fight.

“Yes, a hundred percent because, like I told you, it was his debut and I had fought a main event against (UFC lightweight champion) Islam (Makhachev). I’ve fought all these veterans and I’m only 28 years old. So I feel like I still have a lot of room for improvement. I am improving every day and I know I will reach the belt as soon as possible.

Moises, who turned 29 a week after the Ramirez fight, is in a good place in his career. He gave Makhachev a hard time in 2021 before being submitted in the fourth round, he already holds victories over Alexander Hernandez, Bobby Green and Michael Johnson, and has completed his last three victories. Next up is Ludovit Klein, and even if it’s not the man he called out – Dan Hooker – Moises will still step up when his name is called.

“We are paid to fight,” he said. “I’ll fight anyone, just tell me where and who.” I will be there. I’m going to sign the contract and I’m going to introduce myself.

See you in June.
