Moraes: Pregnancy more likely than a tap vs. Mutante at TUF Brazil finale

by Guilherme Cruz | source:

Marcelo Garcia protege Sergio Moraes talked to TATAME TV about his upcoming UFC 147 fight against Cezar Mutante, to decide the Middleweight winner of TUF Brazil.

Guilherme Cruz: You lost during the reality show but after Daniel Sarafian got injured you got a second chance. What are the expectations for your fight?

Sergio Moraes: Actually, who knows me know I’ve been working a lot to reach the top. I would never root for Sarafian nor Mutante get injury so I would get this chance. I’ve always walked alone and I’ve never wished bad things. I got this chance and now I have to gather all this positive vibe, all this time I’ve spent away from my family, my moving to Curitiba for this training camp with Shogun and Dida and now I have to show all of this in this three five-minute rounds.

GC: What do you know about Cezar Mutante’s game?

SM: Well, Mutante isn’t an expert in one area. He’s a modern MMA fighter, he’s been training Muay Thai, Wrestling, Jiu-Jitsu, so he’s a modern athlete. I’m prepared for anything he brings. I left Jiu-Jitsu aside and now I’m a MMA athlete. If we have to stand-up, let’s do it. I believe he won’t try to take me to the ground (laughs).

GC: He says he is ready in case things go to the floor.

SM: It’s easier for him to impregnate than submit me (laughs).

GC: What are your thoughts about the featherweight finale?

SM: F---, it’s hard to have a say on this because they are both guys I like. I guess the stand-up game is better for Rony and ground game is a better area for Pepey, so it’s 50-50. But it’s not a big advantage for one side at one are or the other.

One of my favorite guys on the show, I'm excited for this fight. Mutante is a tough fight but I hope he gets it to the floor. I was surprised he took down Pe de Chumbo, he could possibly do the same to Cezar.

^yep. No need for any tap to take place, considering we've seen him get KO'ed before. Anything can happen with these two, but I'm leaning more towards

Mutante has a huge size and striking advantage. It's very likely he can keep the fight standing and KO Moraes.
