Moreno improved so much in just six months, very impressive how he just flew under the radar the whole time while we were focused on Askarov and JoeyB

I think Figurado needs to go to battamweight, dude was crying on the scale and it was really uncomfortable to watch. I think Moreno improvement in the last 6 month, is not as great as people say, because of the weight cut, Figgy only throw like 10 punches, attempted and landed a takedown, and did a few gulliteens. Also Figuradio got dropped by a light jab, Compare that to all the **** he was doing and eating last fight. Figurado should fight  top 5 battamweights like Pedro Munoz or Rob Font

That not to **** on Moreno, I still think he is the number 1 flyweight in the world, Just saying it like it is. Moreno will be champ for a while
