Brandon Moreno vs. Deiveson Figueiredo Flyweight UFC 270: fight card, TV and how to watch online
Flyweight champion Brandon Moreno defends his title against Deiveson Figueiredo in Anaheim, California in the co-main event of UFC 270.
Brandon Moreno (19-5-2 MMA, 7-2-2 UFC) will defend his title for the first time against former holder Deiveson Figueiredo at the Honda Center, Anaheim, California later this evening. This will be the third meeting between the two – the first, in December 2020, ended in a thrilling draw. Moreno came out on top in the rematch back in June landing 47 significant strikes compared to Figueiredo’s 24, to become Mexico’s first UFC champion on a night to remember in Las Vegas.
Figueiredo (20-2-1 MMA, 9-2-1 UFC) will be looking to wrest the belt back although he goes into tonight’s fight very much as the underdog for the bookies. His last TKO was against John Moraga back in August 2018 and Moreno’s recent form plus his submission win over the Brazilian little over six months ago gives him the edge.
