Renato Moicano is itching to return to the Octagon after falling short in his last outing.
Moicano was last seen in action earlier this month. He went one-on-one against one of the all-time greats, Jose Aldo in the co-main event of UFC on ESPN+ 2. Aldo ended up scoring a second-round TKO victory. It’s the second loss in Moicano’s professional mixed martial arts career.
Moicano Looking To Rebound In A Big Way
Moicano isn’t dwelling on the loss to Aldo. In fact, he’s already looking forward and he told BJPenn.com that he’s eyeing a rematch with Brian Ortega or a showdown with Frankie Edgar:
“I want to return in Curitiba in May for UFC 237. That is what I want, we never know what the UFC will do, but hopefully they put me in Curitiba. I want to fight Frankie Edgar or Brian Ortega. I want to fight the best. What I think is, Ortega and myself are coming off losses. The first time we fought, it was a great fight, so I think it is a good fight to do. If they book a rematch, I will win the rematch this time.”
Ortega handed Moicano the first loss of his career. The two shared the Octagon back in July 2017. “T-City” won the bout via submission in the third round.
