New UFC Flyweight Champion

Figueiredo regained the UFC Flyweight Championship on Saturday, defeating Brandon Moreno via unanimous decision (48-47, 48-47, 48-47) at UFC 270 in Anaheim.
ANALYSIS
No fighters have ever faced each other four times in the UFC, but that appears to be where this one is heading after another epic clash between Figueiredo and Moreno. The Brazilian regained the title he lost to Moreno last June, but it didn't come easy. In fact, there's a real case to be made that Moreno was the more effective and consistent fighter throughout the course of the bout. He was certainly the more active fighter. Yet, Figueiredo had two big things going for him. The first was a wise game plan in which Deiveson landed plenty of leg kicks to limit Moreno's mobility. The second, and most important aspect of the fight, was a pair of knockdowns from Figueiredo. The first coming very late in Round 3 and the second midway through Round 5. The one in the third frame was the most important strike of the fight, as it swung a round that was seemingly going in Brandon's favor the other way. It would have been nice to see Figueiredo pick up the volume and aggressiveness at points, but that's just nitpicking. Figueiredo and Moreno are clearly the two best flyweights on the planet today, and with them now tied at a fight a piece (plus a tie) in their trilogy, a fourth bout, potentially in Moreno's native Mexico, seems to be the end result here. And it will be terrific. In the meantime, Figueiredo will take home a $50,000 bonus for his efforts here, as this bout was awarded Fight of the Night honors.

The fight between Figueiredo and Brandon Moreno has been moved to UFC 270 on Jan. 22, according to Danny Segura of MMAJunkie.com.
ANALYSIS
The third bout between these two elite fighters was expected to happen in December this year, but now they will have to wait until January next year to cap their trilogy. The move comes after the addition of Masvidal-Edwards to UFC 269. As of early-October, oddsmakers list Figueiredo as approximately a (+150) betting underdog to earn back his championship.

No-shows UFC 263 loss, drops belt
FlyweightUFC
June 12, 2021
Figueiredo lost his UFC Flyweight Championship on Saturday, falling to Brandon Moreno via submission (rear-naked choke) at 2:26 of Round 3 at UFC 263 in Glendale, Arizona.
ANALYSIS
The first fight between these two, which took place last December and was ultimately ruled a draw, was a back-and-forth war. This was a lopsided affair in which Figueiredo wasn't the least bit competitive. That's not to take anything away from Moreno, who was brilliant, but Figueiredo looked so bad that it wouldn't be the least bit surprising to find out he was dealing with an injury or something. He was suspiciously inactive and allowed Moreno to dominate no matter where the fight took place. It could have just been an off night, but Figueiredo has looked like a dominant physical force (even in the previous draw) throughout the duration of his UFC run, and he was the furthest thing from that on Saturday. Given the Brazilian's talent level and lack of depth in the division, there appears to be an overwhelming likelihood that Figueiredo works his way back into the title picture before too long.
Books title rematch with Moreno
FlyweightUFC
February 25, 2021
Figueiredo (toe/biceps) agreed Thursday to take on Brandon Moreno (shoulder/arm) in a flyweight title rematch June 12 at UFC 263, Ariel Helwani of ESPN.com reports.
ANALYSIS
Figueiredo (20-1-1) retained his title belt after fighting Moreno (18-5-2) to a draw at UFC 256 in Las Vegas back in December, though both flyweights came out of the bout with six-month medical suspension. Both should be back to full health by the summer, at which point Figueiredo will put his belt on the line once again. Including his draw with Moreno, "Deus da Guerra" is unbeaten in his last six fights.
