UFC's first ever Mexican-born champion Brandon Moreno is hunting for his next fight ... telling Andrew Capucetti of TMZ Sports he wants to take on the ex-bantamweight champ Cody Garbrandt -- if he can make the weight.
Capucetti caught up with the 27-year-old Mexican star fresh off last month's huge win over Deiveson Figueiredo ... and while "Deus Da Guerra" wants an immediate rematch, Moreno says he's got some work to do before getting the trilogy fight.
"I think he needs to fight against another guy because the last fight wasn't even close," Moreno tells us. "Domination from the first through the third round."
"I'm open to fight against him, but I think he needs to fight again with somebody," he added. "Not because I'm scared or something like that -- it's hard to get scared in this sport because a lot of brave people here in this sport -- but I think it's not my next fight."
