Former UFC flyweight champion Brandon Moreno has announced he’s stepping away from MMA for the foreseeable future.

Moreno lost to Brandon Royval by split-decision in the main UFC Mexico City fight, which was his second defeat. Moreno, who lost his title in July to Alexandre Pantoja, says that he is taking a break from the sport.

“I feel like I’m at a point in my life where I’m putting in the work, I’m dedicated, but the results just aren’t there, and it’s very frustrating,” Brandon Moreno said in Spanish (translation by MMAJunkie). “This is something that makes me very sad, but something that makes me who I am is that I always find a way to come back. I think with all the technical aspect things aside, I think I’m just tired. I’m tired of the media, the same questions, the vibe, the constant pressure.”

“I don’t even think it’s a single moment anymore. I think it’s everything I’ve piled on my shoulders in the last few years. I’ve reached a point where my mind is stressed, and I just want to rest a bit. “
