USA TODAY Sports/MMA Junkie rankings, Jan. 25: Deiveson Figueiredo reclaims top spot at 125 pounds

Brandon Moreno fans might not agree with the result at UFC 270, but Deiveson Figueiredo is once again the promotion’s flyweight champion.

After a thrilling five-round affair in the co-main event of this past Saturday’s event, Figueiredo (21-2-1 MMA, 10-2-1 UFC) earned back the title he ceded to Moreno (19-6-2 MMA, 7-3-2 UFC) this past June. It was the third straight meeting between the two fighters, who now incredibly stand at 1-1-1 and may very well be headed toward an immediate fourth meeting.

With the victory, Figueiredo reclaims the No. 1 position at 125 pounds in the latest USA TODAY Sports/MMA Junkie rankings. He also receives a bump in the pound-for-pound list, supplanting Moreno at No. 10.
