WSOF bantamweight champ Marlon Moraes open to fights at 145 – or even 155
(mmajunkie.com)
“If (WSOF matchmaker Ali Abdelaziz and president Ray Sefo) come to me and say, ‘Marlon, you want to do a superfight,’ I would be able to,” he said. WSOF has some solid champions in those divisions: featherweight Lance Palmer (10-1) and lightweight Justin Gaethje (14-0). The organization doesn’t have a flyweight champion, but that doesn’t seem to matter. “(I’d do) 145, 155 – but not 125,” Moraes said with a laugh.
