UFC 245 Highlights: Marlon Moraes Edges Out Jose Aldo

Marlon Moraes vs. Jose Aldo lived up to expectations at UFC 245.

The two fighters met in a bantamweight bout at the UFC 245 pay-per-view event on Saturday night (December 14, 2019) from the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada.

From the get-go, this fight was fireworks as both guys were looking to exchange with strikes. Aldo was constantly walking him down while trying to get inside. Moraes did a good job of keeping his range while landing some big hooks and several head kicks. This was Aldo’s bantamweight debt under the UFC banner. In the end, the judges gave the win to Moraes by split decision.
