Deiveson Figueiredo attempting to unify his UFC flyweight vs interim title holder Brandon Moreno at UFC 283

Deiveson Figueiredo is planning to fight for his second title after unifying his UFC flyweight title against interim title holder Brandon Moreno at UFC 283. Although the fight at hand against Brandon is more of a focus right now he isn’t letting go of the idea of fighting for the UFC bantamweight title.

Figueiredo, the current UFC flyweight champion, is on his way to meet interim titleholder Brandon Moreno at UFC 283. In Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, both fighters will unify their respective belts in this matchup. The Brazilian MMA fighter will confront his opponent, who has a record of 21-2-1 MMA and 10-2-1 UFC, and the Mexican MMA fighter, who has a record of 20-5-2 MMA and 8-2-2 UFC, in a historic match. The bout will be a co-headliner with a pay-per-view event.

It’s amazing to see the duo back in the cage again. Regardless, Figueiredo considers The Assassin Baby as his enemy. While he recently admitted that he is willing to fight Brandon no matter how many times, he will not fight Henry Cejudo due to their friendship. Although it was later revealed that he plans to compete at bantamweight after UFC 283 he will pass up the opportunity if he has to face his buddy.

Even though the 35-year-old is more focused on his future as he gains weight to fight for the bantamweight title. On that note, he recently stated in one of his interviews, “I wanna test myself at 135 pounds and leave the doors open for the UFC to offer me the champion, keeping the belt after this fight with Brandon Moreno, I have faith in God that everything will go right; I’ll challenge the bantamweight champion if the belt isn’t with Henry Cejudo. If that’s the case, then I’ll stay at flyweight because Henry Cejudo is a brother to me and I would never fight him.”
