Midnight Mania! Brandon Moreno vs Deiveson Figueiredo trilogy booked for UFC 269

Well, this is unexpected. UFC Flyweight kingpin Brandon Moreno is one bout removed from toppling Deiveson Figueiredo to take his crown at UFC 263 in June 2021. Prior to that battle, the pair put on perhaps 2020’s finest battle, which ended as a draw and set up the rematch. Given the results alone, an immediate trilogy bout certainly makes a bit of sense.

Brandon Moreno vs Deiveson Figueiredo Trilogy Fight Official for UFC 269

The UFC didn’t waste any time booking a trilogy fight between Brandon Moreno and Deiveson Figueiredo. The trilogy is official and set to take place at UFC 269 on Dec. 11th. The rivalry between Figueiredo and Moreno is quickly becoming one of the best in UFC flyweight history. During their inaugural bout, Deiveson was the champion at UFC 256. In a very close war, the pair fought to a draw after Figueiredo was deducted one point in round 3 due to a groin strike. Nonetheless, Figueiredo kept his championship, and both competitors walked away from the event with “Fight of the Night” honors.

The trilogy is on

Current flyweight champion and super nice guy Brandon Moreno is going to be giving the former king a rematch. The bout will go down in December and will be a reality check for the division. Brandon finished Deiveson Figueiredo in the third round at UFC 263 and in doing so...
