Moraga: Johnson is boring, doesn’t finish
John Moroga is an impressive 2-0 in the UFC’s newly formed flyweight division and was scheduled for a title fight until champion Johnson was injured. Moroga recently spoke to Yahoo! Sports about his thoughts on the champion:
The 13-1 Moraga, who challenges Johnson in the main event of UFC on FOX 8 on July 27 in Seattle, didn’t mince words when asked what he thought of the inaugural titleholder in the UFC’s 125-pound weight class.
“I think he’s boring,” Moraga said in a recent interview.
But he was only getting started. Asked to clarify why he considers “Mighty Mouse” dull, Moraga unloaded.
“I think he just bounces around, he runs around so much and he don’t fight,” Moraga said. “You know, he doesn’t put on exciting fights. He has a lot of technique and a lot of skill, but he doesn’t go in there and try to finish people, I don’t feel.”
