Video: Albert Morales on growing as a fighter, signing new contract with UFC, and fighting Benito Lopez

The opening matchup on Saturday’s UFC Fight Night 123 main card on FS1 will be a bantamweight bout as Albert Morales will look to get back on the winning side of the fight as he will take on Benito Lopez.

Morales (7-2-1) lost a decision against Brett Johns at UFC Fight Night 113 in July and he’s gone 1-2-1 in his four fights in the UFC. He was initially scheduled to fight Lopez back in 2016, but Lopez pulled out of the fight.

During this week’s podcast, Morales was a guest on the show to preview his fight against Lopez. Along with previewing his fight, he talked about growing as a fighter and signing a new multi-fight deal with the UFC.
