A highly interesting fight between ranked lightweights Renato Moicano and Benoit Saint-Denis is booked for the upcoming UFC event in Paris in September. That’s according to MMA Junkie.

As the bout is scheduled for five rounds it looks to be the main event of the fight card.

Home town hero Saint-Denis looks to bounce back from a tough knockout loss against Dustin Poirier at UFC 299 a few months back. That defeat snapped an impressive five-fight winning streak.

Moicano enters the fight on a three-fight winning streak including a recent TKO victory over Jalin Turner at UFC 300 in April. Moicano has been on fire over the past few years, winning five of his most recent six outings. His only defeat was a short-notice decision to Rafael dos Anjos in March 2022.
