Longtime featherweight fighter Renato Moicano will make the move up to lightweight in March, facing Damir Hadzovic on the UFC on ESPN+ 28 card in Brazil.
Moicano lost his last two fights, getting finished by Jose Aldo and more recently “The Korean Zombie” Chan Sung Jung in a main event bout.
Hadzovic dropped to Christos Giagos in his last fight via unanimous decision. In total, he has a 3-3 record in his UFC run.
