Marlon Moraes is Officially a Free Agent according to his Manager

According to a tweet by Ariel Helwani, World Series of Fighting Bantamweight Champion Marlon Moraes is a Free Agent.

When Ariel Helwani tweets, people listen.  Today he reported that per Marlon Moraes’ agent, Ali Abdelaziz, the Bantamweight Champion is a free agent, and in talks with everyone.  Moraes (18-4) is considered by many to be among the best five Bantamweights in the world.  He would certainly be a tremendous addition to the UFC roster.

Moraes has not lost a fight in the past six years, and he’s currently on a 13 fight winning streak.  He fought and won on New Years Eve against Josenaldo Silva for World Series of Fighting’s Madison Square Garden show.  That marked his last fight under his current contract with WSOF.  He finds himself in the envious position of getting offers from seemingly all organizations and picking his new home.

Potential fights in the UFC against Cody Garbrandt, TJ Dillashaw, Dominick Cruz, John Lineker are all dream fights for fans of Moraes.  He has outstanding potential opponents in Bellator as well.  Names like Eduardo Dantas, LC Davis. Joe Warren and Darrion Caldwell are all very intriguing.

Regardless of where the talented Bantamweight calls home, the fans will be the real winners, as he’s a tremendous talent and would be an outstanding addition to any roster.
