Brandon Moreno skeptical of Deiveson Figueiredo’s injury claim, thinks he’s being ill-advised by team

Brandon Moreno is not buying Deiveson Figueiredo’s injury claim, which is ultimately the reason why their rivalry remains unsettled. The former UFC flyweight champion was expected to fight Figueiredo a fourth consecutive time this summer to settle the score in yet another championship fight. However, the UFC ended up going with an interim title fight between Moreno (19-5-2 MMA, 7-2-2 UFC) and Kai Kara-France for UFC 277 on July 30, as Figueiredo is unable to defend his title due to an injured finger.
