UFC Fight Night 129 Results: Alexandre Pantoja Dominates Brandon Moreno

Alexandre Pantoja and Brandon Moreno first met during TUF 24, which neither guy ended up winning, although on the show Pantoja did beat Moreno by submission.

Now they’re meeting again, and since those days, Moreno has seen one heck of a push by the UFC that resulted in him headlining a UFC event in Mexico. Who takes it this time?

Usually, Moreno’s striking is colorful and dangerous. Pantoja is unimpressed though, and proceeds to beat the ever-lovin’ crap out of the Mexican fighter. Just about every time Moreno starts to move like he’s about to strike, Pantoja simply steps in and blasts him, and Moreno is a mess by the end of the surely 10-8 round.

There are grappling sequences, which, given Pantoja’s expertise on the ground, are totally about him putting Moreno is mucho danger. And in Rounds 2 and 3, Moreno does manage to score with a punch or kick here or there. But man, he takes a whoopin’. Pantoja simply has his number.

Results: Alexandre Pantoja def. Brandon Moreno via Unanimous Decision

UFC Fight Night 129 Primer: The Definitive Maia/Usman Preview Post

Like a just and benevolent god in charge of all things violence, the UFC is bringing us another edition of fistic goodness this weekend. UFC Fight Night 129 is the official moniker, and it comes to us from Santiago, Chile.

As the backwater location suggests, this isn’t one of those major UFC events. It certainly lacks star power, with the biggest name on the card – Demian Maia – taking on TUF winner Kamaru Usman in the main event and the rest of the roster stocked with “Who the heck is that?” and “Oh, that guy? Yeah, I sort of remember him…”

But whatevs. It’s fighting, right?

Having challenged then-champ Anderson Silva back in the day, and more recently challenging Tyron Woodley for the belt, Maia has established himself as a talented dude who will never, ever be king. He’s still good though, with his jiu-jitsu magic keeping at bay Father Time. For now, at least…

Then there’s Usman, who won TUF a while back, has kept up the win streak, and managed to never get big fights. Maia is going to be one heck of the test.

The other fighters on the card have their respective appeal. Alexa Grasso was scooped up from Invicta FC as possibly a female superstar for the Central American market. Brandon Moreno is another Mexican star on the cusp of greatness. And Brazilian Michel Prazeres has been racking up wins for a pretty decent streak.

So… who’s tuning in and watching on Saturday?
