New opponent but to be honest, The opponent doesn’t really matter, what matters is on April 14 I step in to that cage and overcome my self and perform my best! And I will.
UFC on FOX 29 will take place April 14 at Gila River Arena in Glendale, Ariz., and airs on FOX following prelims on FS1 and UFC Fight Pass.
Burns, 31, was scheduled to fight Olivier Aubin-Mercier at UFC on FOX 28 in February but was pulled from the card early in fight week after UFC doctors cited concerns about his remaining weight cut.
Moret, 31, will make his UFC debut as a winner of six of his past seven bouts. He’s earned nine career wins by stoppage, with eight of those coming by submission.
