UFC lightweight fighter Renato Moicano is slowly becoming a big pull in the division. Not only is he a good fighter, but he also knows how to promote himself. He got a hike in fame after his infamous post-fight interview with Joe Rogan at UFC 281. He had an impressive performance over Brad Riddell. ‘Money’ knows that a fight against a big-name opponent could bring him the recognition he is looking for. As Moicano‘s nickname suggests, he is looking for the money fight and the opportunity to cement his place among the elite in the UFC lightweight division, which is the reason why he called out Tony Ferguson. However, the fighter who responded to the callout isn’t ‘El Cucuy’.
