UFC Fortaleza Results: Moraes and Aldo come up big in Brazil

Marlon Moraes and Jose Aldo were big winners at UFC Fortaleza this past Saturday night as both staked claims for big fights in their respective divisions.

Marlon Moraes’ rematch with Raphael Assuncao saw him claim redemption after losing their first meeting 2 years ago.

Moraes was able to crack Assuncao early with a big looping overhand right hook which allowed Moraes to follow him to the mat and work in a very nice guillotine choke to end the fight in the first round.

Moraes in his post fight interview admitted that he was unwell during the week and that the main event was “almost lost” due to a mosquito bite. However, this didn’t seem to affect his performance or his mood as he called out bantamweight champion TJ Dillashaw.
