UFC Fight Night: Pettis vs. Moreno - Why Should We Care?

The UFC's 114th Fight Night installment is set to take off tomorrow night, and while it doesn't have the same glamour as UFC 214 there are a few reasons to be excited.

  • The fights take place at elevation in Mexico City, as high as 12,890 ft above sea level.  This can spell certain doom for some already cardio challenged fighters (I'm looking at you Rani Yahya).
     
  • If Pettis wins on Saturday he will have as many wins as his brother Anthony.  (Credit to Sean Sheehan)
     
  • The night will have a Game Of Thrones theme as the UFC has reanimated the corpse of Rashad Evans and dragged him over the wall to fight in Mexico City.
  • Joseph Morales vs. Roberto Sanchez is a prelim bout between two undefeated Flyweight Prospects.

  • Diego Rivas is an undefeated bantamweight who absolutely deleted Noah Lahat's face with a knee last fight.

  • Niko Price is an undefeated Welterweight who submitted Brandon Thatch and Knocked Out Albert Morales in his last two fights.  The latter was overturned to a No Contest after it was found that marijuana aided Price in concussing Morales with his fists.  Price is fighting Alan Jouban.

  • Brandon Moreno has not lost in 5 years.

UFC Fight Night: Pettis vs. Moreno airs Saturday August 5th, 7 PM EST on Fight Pass, 8 PM EST on FS1, and 10 PM EST on FS1.  Follow @TomorrowsFights on twitter for live updates and play by play and like us on Facebook!
