A lot of people in the fight community know Moreno, as he spars with some of the best fighters in the world over at Jackson Wink MMA Academy. This fight only marks his second professional bout, but he expects to being the action on his feet.

“Everybody in New Mexico knows me, everybody knows and seen me in action, and they know what i am about. They are definitely going to go, as this card is almost sold out. They know what I am going to do Saturday night,” said Josh Moreno.

Moreno is 1-0 professionally and is taking on Colorado native Sonny Yohn who is 2-1 professionally.
