This is the UFC 271 live blog for Alexander Hernandez and Renato Moicano, which takes place on the main card at the Toyota Center in Houston on Saturday night.
Hernandez looks bright in the lightweight division. However, he has struggled lately to gain momentum, with alternating losses and wins over seven of his fights. Moicano, meanwhile, is a former featherweight who has done well since moving up to 155 pounds, going 2- 1 with submission victories over Damir Hadzovic and Jai Herbert in addition to a KO loss to Rafael Fiziev.
Originally scheduled for the prelims, a place Hernandez wasn’t happy with – after Matt Schnell and Alex Perez fell off the card because of a weight mishap, the UFC changed some things. Hernandez and Moicano now have the opportunity to appear on pay-per view.
