Prior to his recent appearance on ESPN “SportsCenter Asia,”
Moreira was understandably a little on edge.
The first mixed martial artist to ever appear on the program, the
Brazil native spoke briefly with anchor Steve
Dawson about his upcoming bout with Felipe
Enomoto at One
Fighting Championship 3.
“I was very nervous before I went on ESPN ‘SportsCenter,’ because
they told me they had never had an MMA fighter before, and my
English is not so good,” Moreira told Sherdog.com of his on-air
experience. “It is very crazy in Singapore right now because
everyone is talking about One Fighting Championship, and there are
posters of me and everyone wants to know about my fight. When I
first came here, most people did not know what MMA [was], but now
everyone has heard about One FC and has seen it on TV.”
Moreira and Enomoto will headline Saturday’s event,
