Prior to this bout at UFC Fight Night Moncton, a big transition that Moras made was to move to Las Vegas and everything has worked out well so far.
“I couldn’t be happier here, I just love it so much. There’s so many high level people to train with, I have a great coach here. The UFC PI (Performance Institute) is just amazing to have, like a nutritionist that like orders all of my meals for me so I don’t have to think about anything. I can just focus on the fight and I can just go to the gym and my coach is focused on me, I just have to listen to what they say and it makes my job a whole lot easier,” says Moras in an exclusive interview with Fightful’s James Lynch.
Moras’ fight against Bernardo is a key one for the UFC fighter, as the result will either put her over or under the .500 mark in the fighters UFC tenure.
If Moras wants to achieve one big goal at UFC Fight Night Moncton, it would be to get that performance of the night bonus.
“Its always like…you wanna get that finish and that’s always what I’m going for…is a finish. I haven’t knocked anybody out yet in a fight yet, so I’d love to get a knockout win. Wherever the fight goes and the higher level opponents you fight, the harder it is to get a finish. I’m ready for a battle, but I wanna get that performance of the night. I’ve improved so much being here and I’m just so excited and to show everyone what I’ve learned,” says Moras.
UFC Fight Night Moncton takes place on Saturday, October 27 from the Moncton Events Centre in Moncton, New Brunswick, Canada with Volkan Oezdemir and Anthony Smith headlining. Fightful is providing live coverage of the event, which airs live on Fox Sports 1.
