Deiveson Figueiredo: “Brando Moreno is not a fighter to fight two rounds”

UFC flyweight champion Brazilian Deiveson Figueiredo believes that his future rival, Mexican Brandon Moreno, will not be able to last longer with him in the octagon for the previous opponent of the American Alex Perez.

“Without a doubt, Perez is much tougher than Moreno. But I’m ready to shut him up on the 12th. So that he no longer calls my name and does not be active on social networks. Brandon has a boxing background. In this direction he is a dangerous opponent, but if we talk about his Jiu-Jitsu and takedowns, I see no danger there. The fight with Perez was easy, but here it will be even easier.

I always study my opponents carefully. This gives me the confidence to win when we are in the octagon. I work hard to study their weaknesses and take advantage of this during the fight. Moreno will be knocked out. This is not the kind of fighter with whom to fight two rounds, ”said Figueiredo.

Recall that the duel between Davison Figueiredo and Brandon Moreno will be the main event of UFC 256, which will take place on December 12 at the UFC Apex in Las Vegas.

Bellator and PFL not interested in signing Yoel Romero

It looks like it won’t be easy for Cuban MMA fighter Yoel Romer to find his next employer after leaving the UFC.

Recall that last week Romero was unexpectedly fired from the strongest promotion of mixed martial arts, despite the fact that in his last fight he fought for the UFC title. The head of the organization, Dana White, later announced that he decided to say goodbye to Romero, given his age and a long streak of defeats.

Many immediately began to discuss where Romero would continue his career, however, according to ESPN insider Ariel Helvani, the 43-year-old Cuban should consider moving overseas, since the next most popular MMA promotions after the UFC are not interested in signing Yoel.

“Surprisingly, I was told that Bellator and the PFL do not want to sign Romero,” Helvani said during his co-broadcast with Daniel Cormier.

Note that earlier, Romero’s manager said that his ward could sign a contract with one of the Russian mixed martial arts organizations.
