Marlon Moraes is confident he'll get the call to fight for the now-vacant 135-pound title. "That's my fight," he told ESPN. "I'm very confident UFC will pick the right opponent for me. Cejudoweight? Tell Henry Cejudo to stay in his lane. We all saw what happened with TJ changing weight classes last time. If he is thinking about bringing his little ass up to 135, he is in big trouble."
UFC is currently working on an Al Iaquinta vs. Donald Cerrone main event fight for the May 4 card in Ottawa, Ontario, Canada, sources say. The fight isn't finalized or signed, but it is definitely being seriously discussed at the moment.
Top UFC lightweight contender Al Iaquinta says he was offered by the UFC a fight with former interim champion Tony Ferguson. Will not happen with Ferguson dealing with out-of-the-Octagon problems. Last week Ferguson's wife filed a restraining order.
