Aljamain Sterling Wants A Rematch With Marlon Moraes

MMA

Aljamain Sterling is currently riding a three fight winning streak, having defeated the trio of Brett JohnsCody Stamann and Jimmie Rivera.

Before that winning streak began, a surging Sterling suffered a brutal first round knockout loss via knee strike to the face from former WSOF Bantamweight Champion Marlon Moraes at UFC Fight Night Fresno

Sterling would now like to avenge that last loss, as he called out Moraes via Twitter:

 

Moraes, since that victory over Sterling, has gone onto pickup victories over the duo of the aforementioned Jimmie Rivera and Raphael Assuncao, with the Assuncao fight also serving as a rematch from Moreas' UFC debut. 

There has been no response yet from Moraes as to the challenge laid out by Sterling, but Moreas is #1 in the UFC Bantamweight Divisions rankings, while Sterling is sitting at #3.
