Former UFC featherweight title contender Brazilian Marlon Moraes announced his retirement after losing to Gabriel Braga at PFL 4: 2023 Regular Season.
Braga defeated Moraes by first-round TKO on the night of June 9, marking Marlon's seventh consecutive knockout loss.
I gave my heart to the sport. God gave me everything I have. I can't be sad today. I'm happy. I have a beautiful wife and two children.
Moraes, 35, had his previous fight against Brendan Loughnane in April 2023 at PFL 1. That fight ended with Marlon's TKO in the second round. He has 23 wins, 13 losses and one draw.
