Manager Jason House reacts to Brandon Moreno’s UFC 263 title win: ‘There was a look in his eye all week long’

Whether in MMA or in life as a whole, you always remember your first.

In manager Jason House’s case, he has his first UFC world champion in his stable of fighters as of this past Saturday night.

House, the CEO of Iridium Sports, an agency that represents one of the deepest rosters in the sport, watched as Brandon Moreno became the flyweight champion in the co-main event of UFC 263 with a third-round submission of Deiveson Figueiredo.

In an exclusive interview, House spoke with MMA Fighting’s Mike Heck and discussed Moreno’s title win and what it means to have a UFC world champion as a client, where the win ranks among memorable moments in MMA history, having eight fighters on Saturday’s UFC Vegas 29 fight card — including The Korean Zombie, who faces Dan Ige in the main event — Julian Erosa’s unheralded comeback and surge, the relationship between managers and the MMA media, and more.
