Brandon Moreno is the new UFC flyweight champion, and he’s looking to get a first title defense in before the year is up. Moreno, who won the title from Deiveson Figueiredo at UFC 263, spoke with ESPN for a new interview and said that he’s hoping to compete again in 2021.

“I don’t know who [I’ll end up facing], but I do know I want to fight again this year,” said Moreno. He noted that he would be interested in headlining a show in Mexico if the company returns there.

Moreno is still processing his win, telling the site, “I still can’t believe it — it’s still [surreal] to me sometimes even after all this time. It’s been a long journey, with a lot of good and bad moments. Mostly good.”
