Cover picture for the articleLOS ANGELES -- Brandon Moreno is not sure who will be his first challenger. But he believes the man he took the belt from might need to do more to deserve a shot. Moreno, the new UFC flyweight champion, said Tuesday at a media lunch that he knows Deiveson Figueiredo wants a trilogy fight for the belt. He said he's open to that if that's what the UFC wants to do, but he believes Figueiredo needs to shore up his résumé before another crack at the title. Moreno stopped Figueiredo by third-round submission at UFC 263 on June 12 to win the flyweight gold and become the first-ever Mexican-born champion in UFC history.
