Deiveson Figueiredo, the flyweight champion of the UFC, appears to be in the best shape of his professional career when a video showcasing his ripped body emerged only days before the UFC 283 weigh-ins.
A video of the Brazilian that MMA writer Chamatkar Sandhu posted on Twitter showed him to be in excellent shape. In the video, “Deus da Guerra” flexes and stands up as he displays his lean physique before the weigh-ins.
This is Deiveson Figueiredo, 12 hours have passed since the formal weigh-ins, which is a full 2 days away.
In their fourth fight, Figueiredo will make his third defence of the flyweight title against Brandon Moreno. In December 2020, the two first met and staged a Fight of the Night performance, which marked the beginning of their enduring rivalry. Due to the razor-thin margin of victory, the Brazilian was able to keep the belt.
To determine who was the king of the division, Figueiredo and “The Assassin Baby” squared off twice more. Moreno won the second match, but Figueiredo won the trilogy.
The two flyweights’ head-to-head record is currently 1-1-1 thanks to their thrilling fights, and at UFC 283, they square off for a record fourth time in what supporters are hoping will put an end to their animosity.
Deiveson Figueiredo and Brandon Moreno exchange words ahead of record fourth bout
As they get ready for their fourth match at UFC 283, Deiveson Figueiredo and Brandon Moreno have spoken harshly to one another.
The main change going into their forthcoming bout, according to Figueiredo, is that Moreno now “fears” him as a fighter, he said during UFC 283 media day:
“Brant’s worst nightmare is me. Unfortunately, UFC only has this fight to offer for sale. Brandon Moreno vs. Deiveson Figueiredo The main distinction, in my opinion, is his dread of me. The biggest difference, in my opinion, is that he detests me.
When he spoke with SHAK MMA, Brandon Moreno had his own chance to comment on the flyweight champion. The Mexican fighter claims that since their first fight, the Brazilian has only said “sh*t”
“He has been talking trash about me ever since the first fight. Then, [after] I defeated him in the second fight, the guy gave me a hug, picked me up, and other things, and the next week, he began to gossip about me once more. He entered the octagon following the battle between Kai Kara and France and looked for issues… The following week, he began to talk negatively about me once more. That’s excessive. That, in my opinion, is sufficient cause to dislike the man.”
