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.”

He also said he doesn't think MM is that fast. I hope he really doesn't believe that. Phone Post

Johnson has all the tools to be a diverse champ. But the guy hasn't had a KO or Sub in 3 years. I think that he just needs to pull the trigger, rather than smother.

Well, the level of competition Moraga has faced doesnt even compare to what MM has faced in his last 10 fights; Dodson, Benavidez, McCall (2x), Cruz, Torres, Yamamoto, Page, Pace and Pickett.   BTW... Moraga's lone loss is to Dodson.....it's easy to talk about finishing fights when you're not facing the top tier guys.

I don't find Mighty Mouse boring i like watching him fight. He might not finish fights but neither does Bendo and let's not act like he is some bum

The Real Asian Cowboy - Johnson has all the tools to be a diverse champ. But the guy hasn't had a KO or Sub in 3 years. I think that he just needs to pull the trigger, rather than smother.

His last four opponents have been Cruz, McCall, Dodson and Benevidez. McCall, Dodson and Benevidez combined have one stoppage loss between them in spite of the fact that they've spent the bulk of their careers fighting much larger opposition.

MM didn't try to finish Dodson when he kneed the shit out of him in the late rounds of their fight?

He didn't do any real damage to Benevidez?

 


 

 

I hope that Moraga is just talking shit for the sake of talking shit because his analysis of Johnson's fighting style sounds like some shit that you'd find posted on Sherdog. If this is what he and his camp really think about MM, then he's in for a rude awakening.
