    Congrats to both and I enjoyed both moments but I'm gonna go with Oliveira. 28 fights in the UFC before he got a title shot. That's the most in UFC history.

    Eye poked and almost KO'd in the first round.

    Plus he does a lot for his community.

    But what's your opinion? If you had to pick one, which was the bigger feel good moment for you? Are there any Mexicans that were happier for Charles or Brazilians that were happier for Brandon?

    I like both a lot.. But Moreno edges it for me, the fact he got cut and returned means a lot imo, also the little chance many gave him in both fights.

    I love that Do Bronx did it the long way though and took like 10 years, so well deserved.

    Amazing guys, can't wait to see them both again as Champs!

    Also Figgy Vs Moreno 1 was one of the best Flyweight fights I've ever seen, so the anticipation for the 2nd was super fuckin high.

    I actually teared up during the Moreno bout. I’ve never said that to anyone. I just feel so safe in my sherbros arms.

    Moreno. He just seems like such a humble guy and couldn't even believe it when he won the belt.

    Olivera for me, the way he hopped out the cage all excited. He put in his time and deserved it

    oliveria got the shit beaten out of him many many times. his rise to prominence and title win meant more to me. moreno was cut, but if you look at his record and history, always a beast.

    The way Moreno dusted off a beast like figgy was nothing short of spectacular. Iron brass balls this kid has.

    I have to give it to Oliveira. Dudes had a hell of a journey to win that belt. Props to both though.

    Moreno seems like a fressa and also an attention whore

    plus the fact Figgy just gave it to him imo

    Both were great to see. But I gotta go with Do Bronx if I have to pick, simply because I was a fan since his fight with Escudero all the way back in 2010.

    I will go with Oliveira, he have been in the UFC for a decade and was finally able to get the big one in one of the premier divisions of MMA

    Olivera for sure, it's not close

    oliveira been at it longer and he sealed it when he tried to motivate Tony at the presser behind the scenes when he didn't have to at all

    shows how cool he is

    Do Bronx, his early fights made me think he would be champion one day, and 10 years later it happens. It was unreal.
