The Panamanian being largely unknown in the United States, and in many locations for that matter, may be playing a role in this. Stylistically, Moreno may present Darchinyan with a significant challenge, as he's a tall bantamweight a 5'8", a southpaw, and not only is he tricky, but he's a pretty good dirty fighter when he has to be. He can be a frustrating guy to fight, and Darchinyan, who is 35 years old now, has been known to let his arrogance and emotions get the better of him.
