Renato Moicano is a dangerous man when a fight hits the mat, and he plans to show the world what top level Brazilian jiu-jitsu looks like when he faces Alexander Hernandez at UFC 271 on Saturday. “I am very confident in my ground game against anybody in the world. If it goes to the ground, I think that is my world and he will be in trouble. It will be great to be the first one to submit him,” Moicano tells MILLIONS.
He’s been training with the prestigious American Top Team and says he’s had a solid training camp. Moicano says it is great to be able to work and spar with some of the best fighters in the world, “we have many high level fighters preparing for fights right now so it has been a great room. Everybody is making each other better.”
And if Moicano is improving his ground game, everyone and anyone with sub-par submission defense is at serious risk of either getting choked out or losing a limb. Hernandez has never been submitted, but there’s a first time for everything, and Moicano says he’s spotted some areas to attack, “we see a few different openings where we can gain advantages and win rounds or finish the fight. You must watch Saturday night to see!”
Nobody ever knows exactly how a fight will go, but Moicano is pointing his finger in the air and calling his shot, “round 2 submission choke!” And if he pulls it off it would be his third win in a row, the 16th of his professional career, and the ninth submission victory on his resume. As Moicano prepares for this moment, he’s thinking about his fans.
“Thank you everyone for the support, the fight game is intense and it means so much to get all of the messages and posts online. I want to give my friends and fans a great victory on Saturday night. Thank you to my gym ATT and all of my sponsors- Psychedelic Water, Skilled Violence, Versa Climber, DripRx, Bow Valley BBQ and of course MILLIONS where all of my clothing is available to purchase.”
