Figueiredo and Moreno Set to Settle Rivalry at UFC 283

Flyweight champion Deiveson Figueiredo and interim champion Brandon Moreno are set to meet in the Octagon for the fourth time at UFC 283 where they could settle their rivalry. It is scheduled to be the main event at the promotion in Brazil.

The two world champions have already fought each other three times in the UFC. Their first encounter finished in a draw at UFC 256. In 2021, Moreno prevailed in the third round thanks to a submission, while at UFC 270, Figueiredo gained revenge, coming out on top at the end of five rounds.

Figueiredo is ranked 12th in the pound-for-pound list in the UFC, but victory over his biggest rival in the flyweight division could see him jump into the top 10 in those standings. The 34-year-old has lost just twice in his professional MMA career. His other defeat came against Jussier Formiga back in 2019.

Moreno is not far behind Figueiredo in the pound-for-pound list, as he is in 14th place. He was last in action at UFC 277 back in July. He got the better of Kai Kara-France in a third-round TKO to land the interim Flyweight title.

The Mexican has lost just once in his last nine contests. He was named the 2021 Breakthrough Fighter of the Year following a big 12 months for him. The 28-year-old was the first UFC champion from Mexico and victory over Figueiredo would grab a lot of headlines in his home country.
