Borg, 24, is coming off a crushing title loss to current UFC flyweight champion Demetrious Johnson back at UFC 216, in which Borg was submitted via flying arm bar. Before his meeting with “Mighty Mouse,” the Greg Jackson protege had compiled a 5-2 Octagon record, including a victory over Brazilian contender Jussier Formiga.
Moreno, 23, burst onto the UFC scene after beginning his promotional career with three-straight wins, including submissions of veteran Dustin Ortiz and Hawaiian contender Louis Smolka. After losing his most recent bout to Sergio Pettis this past August, “Assassin Baby” is looking for the quickest way to get right back into title contention.
As of now, no other bouts have officially been announced for UFC Fight Night 126.
