Brandon Moreno and Deiveson Figueiredo had their historic fourth fight at UFC 283, and many believe it brought a definitive end to the rivalry between the two flyweights.
Moreno (21-5-2 MMA, 9-2-2 UFC) recaptured the 125-pound belt when Figueiredo (21-3-1 MMA, 10-3-1 UFC) was deemed unfit to continue due to an eye injury, resulting in a third-round TKO in the co-main event clash at Jeunesse Arena in Rio de Janeiro.
With the win, Moreno moved ahead 2-1-1 in the series and seemingly put the rivalry on the back burner for good. That seems especially true with Figueiredo announcing plans to move up to the bantamweight division going forward.
Is there any unsolved business between the two at this stage? Can Figueiredo find success in his new division? And who should be first to challenge for Moreno’s newly unified belt?
