For now, however, Moreno claims the ball is in Fi gueiredo’s court. “I’ve been in the gym since the fight, training extremely hard,” Moreno recently told MMA Junkie using a translator. “In my conversations with my manager, Jason House, I told him that I’m ready for April, and he’s pushing the UFC hard.
