A fourth fight between flyweight interim champion Brandon Moreno and champion Deiveson Figueiredo will happen. That stood clear after the Morenos impressive TKO-win at UFC 277.
UFC president Dana White is eager to see Moreno and Figueiredo fight again – and even claimed he could watch the flyweights clash ten times.
“It’s one of those unique freaky deals, who doesn’t want to see that fight again. And I’m the worst with that shit, I hate that stuff you know,” White said at the UFC 277 post-fight press conference. “If you got a guy who is up two to one, you don’t ever need to see that fight again, ever. But this is just one of those weird ones that you can.”
Brandon Moreno don’t want to do stupid things on TV
In the post-fight interview Brandon Moreno apologized to rival Figueirdo for offending him in the past, and at the post-fight press conference he talked more about the friendly scenes that took place between him and Figueiredo in the octagon at UFC 277.

“My older daughter is eight years old. Now she understands everything,” Moreno said. “I had the opportunity to be a better example for her. I don’t want for her to have a dad that does stupid things in television right.”
However, he made clear that he really wants the fight with Figueiredo before the end of 2022.
“I don’t care man, wherever,” Brandon Moreno said. “I just want to fight before the end of the year. I have been waiting for him a long time.”
