UFC flyweight champion Brandon Moreno will be facing his old friend Deiveson Figueiredo at the upcoming UFC 269 event. The fight night is scheduled to take place on December 11 at a location yet to be announced.
The current champ and the former one will be fighting for a third time. Their initial bout ended in a draw, but the rematch was all Moreno with the 27-year-old Mexican capturing the belt via submission in the third round.
Moreno will be making his first title defense since he beat Brazil’s Figueiredo back in June.
The 33-year-old “Daico” got outplayed and outsmart in the second meeting, but this time the South American promises the fans they will see the best version of him in December.
