Aung La further went on to add that Moraes has a size advantage which will give him the upper hand.

“Physically for a flyweight, Adriano is so big. He’s bigger than most bantamweights, and for him to make flyweight so easily, it’s insane. I think Adriano has a very good chance of beating DJ again,” The Burmese Python noted.

Speaking further, he noted that the result of the first fight was not a surprise to him.

“To me, it was not a shock at all. We practice the sport of mixed martial arts. How can you say one person from another league is better when we’re doing the same thing and putting in the same hard work? [Moraes] was a Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu black belt at a very young age. He’s got good boxing. He’s as big as they get for flyweight. His build, his size, his skill set, his physical attributes, they all make him the real deal. [The first fight was] not a surprise. It’s not a fluke. You’ll see it in the next fight. I’m not saying that Adriano is going to win for sure, but he has a very, very good chance of beating DJ again,” Aung La added.
