Renato Moicano (14-3-1 MMA, 6-3 UFC)

Featherweight (145lbs): 5-3 (UFC)

Lightweight (155lbs): 1-0 (UFC)

Moicano stands at 5’11” with a 72″ reach. Moicano has never missed weight in the UFC and was a Jungle Fight Featherweight Champion outside of the promtion. Moicano has been fighting professionally in the featherweight division since he began his pro career 10 years ago with Jungle Fight.

Moicano’s long frame is primarily used for submissions and within the UFC’s featherwieght division he was able to pick up good wins against some pretty big names including Jeremy Stephens, Calvin Kattar and Cub Swanson. And after falling to a couple of the division’s elites in co-main and main events Moicano decided to eliminate his excessive weight cut and move up to the lightweight division at the age of 30.

Renato Moicano’s most recent fight was earlier this year in March when he made his career debut in the lightweight division against Damir Hadzovic. Renato will look to add to his perfect record at lightweight at UFC 256 against Rafael Fiziev.
