Deiveson Figueiredo will make the second defence of his UFC flyweight title when he takes on Brandon Moreno this weekend in the main event of UFC 255. Will be another success for the ‘God of War’ or should we expect an upset?
Deiveson Figueiredo v Brandon Moreno Betting Tips | 03:00 am Sunday, 13th December 2020
The 2020 has been, so far, a very positive year for Figueiredo who managed to earn the title when defeating Benavidex in July in an impressive fashion. Figueiredo delivered a first-round win and left the Fight Island as the king of the flyweights.
The first defence of his title was very convincing as well as he managed to stop Alex Perez in just two minutes in November. Brandon Moreno will be hoping that Figueiredo is making a mistake to return to action so swiftly. The 27-year old Mexican is coming into this fight in good spirit as he is still unbeaten since moving to the UFC just more than a year ago, with a record of 3-0-1 in his four Octagon bouts. After a split decision in his first fight against Askar Askarov, he found the right form with three consecutive wins, the last one against Brandon Royval on November 21.

Who will win Deiveson Figueiredo v Brandon Moreno fight?
Both those two fighters are back in action less than a month after the previous fight. The main difference is that the challenger has nothing to lose, so he will have less pressure on his shoulders. Said that we do not think he will leave with the belt. Moreno is a decent fighter who cannot be underestimated, but he doesn’t have the class and experience that the champion has. Figueiredo won’t have to make a mistake to take ‘The Assasin Baby’ lightly, but we don’t think he will.
Figueiredo is a fighter that has impressive knockout power, and this is proven by his nine career KO/TKO wins. 17 of his 20 wins have been inside the distance, so we expect the champion to get the job done pretty quickly and consolidate his first position as number one flyweight in the World.
