    SIR

    A pair of welterweights coming off big wins earlier this year will meet in Florida.

    MMA Junkie today learned from a person with knowledge of the booking that Max Griffin and Alex Morono will meet at UFC on ESPN+ 19, which takes place Oct. 12 in Tampa, Florida. That person requested anonymity because the UFC has yet to make an official announcement.

    Griffin (15-6 MMA, 3-4 UFC) picked up a hard-fought majority decision win over the highly touted and previously undefeated Zelim Imadaev in April. The bout turned into a bit of a grudge match, with Russia’s Imadaev doing his best to make the contest personal throughout fight week. The much-needed result also snapped a two-fight losing streak for Griffin, who had dropped back-to-back decisions to Thiago Alves and Curtis Millender.

    Meanwhile, Morono (16-5 MMA, 5-2 UFC) brings a two-fight winning streak into the contest. Most recently, he scored a first-round TKO over Zak Ottow in March, marking Morono’s first knockout victory under the UFC banner. He also scored a decision win over Song Kenan this past November and stands at 3-1 in his past four outings.

    Griffin is pretty solid, can't remember Morono for some reason.

    Elbowed Ottow into submission in April, got knocked out by Niko Price after dominating him in the first round, got a horrible decision win over Kyle Noke (horrible as he should have easily lost) & a fight of the night decision win over Kenan Song with a few other wins in there too

    Griffin is better than his UFC record suggests whereas Morono is worse than his UFC record suggests if that makes any sense?

    Basically, Griffin would beat all the guys Morono has beaten but Morono would struggle against the guys Griffin has lost to. And the odd one he's beaten! (Imadaev, Perry to name but two).

    Griffin should win a UD.

    I agree, Morono’s most high profile win is Kyle Noke which is a fight that 16/17 media outlets had in favour of Noke (4 of which had it scored 30-27 in favour of Noke), the only media outlet that scored for Morono was Paul Fontaine (wrestling observer), someone known for having really shitty scorecards.
