Brazil’s Moraes established his presence early and had Kingad’s back with less than a minute remaining in the fight.

Moraes (17-2) then locked his rear naked choke forcing Kingad (5-1) to tap out 4:45 into the first round.

“Danny you have a big future, but tonight was my time, I trained hard, I trained my life, I had a tough win, but this is my house, this is my belt, and this is my class,” said Moraes who had his first title defense.
