‘This is special’ MMA fighters react to Brandon Moreno’s flyweight title win over Deiveson Figueiredo at UFC 283

The flyweight title fight between Brandon Moreno and Deiveson Figueiredo co-headlined UFC 283. It was the fourth straight fight for both fighters in the octagon. Although the degree was expected, Figueiredo did his best to earn the respect of other MMA fighters and fans. Reactions from the pro-fighters flooded social media.

Before that, at UFC 283, a flyweight title fight took place between the two. Where Brandon Moreno came out with a win over Deiveson Figueiredo.

Although their previous record was pretty much the same. Figueiredo, also known as the “God of War,” entered the ring with a record of 21-3-1 after going 6-1-1 overall in his last eight bouts. On the other hand, The Assassin Baby entered the ring with a record of 21-6-2 after going 6-1-2 in his last eight bouts.

However, records are just numbers inside the octagon. Having better records in the last eight games didn’t win the match for the Brazilian MMA fighter. The fight ended with a big punch in round three that caused Figgy’s eye to close.

The Mexican was spectacular in the ring today; He outclassed the champion in the first two rounds before landing the final punch. The big hit was so bad that the doctor entered the ring, leading to the decision that the two-time UFC flyweight champion cannot continue.

Afterwards, many professional MMA fighters congratulated and cheered the 29-year-old on social media. Many credited the former champion’s efforts but admitted it was Moreno’s night at UFC 283. Some fans even started counting the victories, leading the Mexican 1-0.

Figgy Smalls is reportedly set to switch to bantamweight due to weight gain. However, he was quick to respond to the rumor with a positive sign, but he won’t continue if he has to face his friend Henry Cejudo in the cage.
