UFC 255 Prelims — Moreno vs. Royval Preview

The UFC 255 Prelims is headlined by a feature fight between two other top UFC Men’s Flyweight contenders, as Brandon Moreno faces Brandon Royval.

Brandon Moreno (17-5-1) is the number one contender in the UFC Flyweight division, so it is a fair question as to why he isn’t fighting for the title in the main event. Moreno was originally supposed to fight against Alex Perez, while the champion Figueiredo was going to fight Cody Garbrandt. Due to an injury Cody suffered, Perez got moved up to the title shot over Moreno. Moreno is on his second stint in the UFC, and he’s 5-2-1 in the promotion. A win against Royval could land him a fight against Garbrandt once he’s recovered, or maybe even put him next in line for a title fight.

Brandon Royval (12-4) is the sixth ranked contender in the Flyweight division, which is quite the accomplishment in such a short time with the promotion. This will be only the third fight Royval has had since joining the UFC, and he is 2-0 so far. Previously this Colorado native fought in LFA and World Series of Fighting among other promotions. Now this 28 year old Muay Thai artist hopes to score a big upset and move himself into that elite level of UFC Flyweights competing for the title.
