Fight number 4 between Deiveson Figuieredo and Brandon Moreno is in its “final arrangements” to take place at UFC 283 on January 21st in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil to unify the Flyweight belt according to Rodrigo Gonzalez.
This fight will take place at Flyweight (125 lbs) where Figuieredo is the champion and Moreno is the interim champion.
There is more history between these two than potentially any fighters today, and with their 4th fight coming up, they will set the record for the most times any two fighters have faced each other in UFC history.
Deiveson Figuieredo is coming off of his 1st win against Brandon Moreno at UFC 271 where he regained his title via split decision. The fight was extremely close, with many scoring it the other way, but 3 knockdowns were enough for ‘Figgy’ to earn the victory.
Moreno’s last fight took place at UFC 277 against another familiar foe, Kai Kara-France. They first met at UFC 245 in 2019 where Moreno would win a unanimous decision over 3 rounds. The fight was shorter this time with Moreno scoring a 3rd-round TKO via nasty liver kick to win the interim Flyweight title.
With their first fight ending in a draw, Moreno winning the 2nd, and Figuieredo winning the 3rd, the pair are 1-1-1 in the UFC and the winner of this fight will try to settle their rivalry forever.
