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.
