Deiveson Figueiredo

Deiveson Figueiredo has been fighting in the UFC since June 2017 and since then, he has developed into a swiss army knife of moves. His only defeat in the organization was against Jussier Formiga and never got a loss after that. “Daico” made his name known by beating Joesph Benavidez twice and in creative ways to earn his UFC Flyweight title. He was also able to beat Tim Elliot, Alexandre Pantoja and the latest was with Alex Perez just last month in UFC 255 via Guillotine Choke in the first round. This Brazillian fighter always looks to finish his fights early and seldom gets into the judges’ scorecards. Expect Figueredo to be the aggressor in this matchup.

Brandon Moreno

Brandon Moreno is just entering his prime as a fighter at 27 years old and is seen to contend at the flyweight division for years. This will be his closest to winning a title since coming to the UFC just this September 2019. “The Assassin Baby” came into the organization with guns ablazing. His debut was a split draw but he showed a lot of resilience in the octagon while facing Kai Kara France and Deiveson Figueiredo’s conqueror Jussier Formiga. Both matches went to the scorecards and it was an easy decision by the judges. He finally showcased his knockout power just this November in UFC 255 as he knocked out Brandon Royval in the last seconds of the first round.

Figueiredo vs. Moreno Summary

Brandon Moreno has been known as a defensive fighter and will strike at the best time possible. It will be interesting to see him dodge Deiveson Figueiredo’s attacks but the champion just has too many moves and has been eating a lot of defensive fighters in his career. Best Sportsbook has Figueiredo as the favorite and he will be the safer bet over Moreno.
