Biography
Moreno was born and raised in Tijuana, Baja California, Mexico, in a modest family with a piñata business. At the age of twelve, he wanted to lose weight so his mother enrolled him in the local Entram Gym where he started training mixed martial arts. Despite earlier intentions to attend law school and become a lawyer, Moreno decided to focus solely on his mixed martial arts career.
