Deiveson Figueiredo successfully defended the belt against Brandon Moreno

After 5 intense matches at UFC 256, defending champion Deiveson Figueiredo successfully defended the belt against Brandon Moreno.

Scheduled for just 20 days after the last victory of both boxers, UFC 256 saw a fly-off competition between defending champion Deiveson Figueiredo and ranked opponent Brandon Moreno. Thinking there would be an overwhelming posture, fly defending champion Deiveson Figueiredo faced many difficulties against American puncher Brandon Moreno.

Right from the first half, two boxers jumped into the double strike and compared each other score. After 5 innings, the hit stats of the two only differed a few points when Deiveson hit 137 compared with 132 hits from Moreno.

Better instance and on target, but being deducted points Deiveson Figueiredo suffered a close draw against Brandon Moreno. Fortunately, the Brazilian still successfully defended the championship.

Dana White gave a hot bonus of $ 50,000 to Deiveson Figueiredo

The UFC president compensated Brazilian new star Deiveson Figueiredo with a direct bonus. At this UFC match, Deiveson Figueiredo defended the Flyweight title in just 2 minutes. He defeated Alex Perez with a quick slash choke.

This victory of the Brazilian boxer, although very impressive, did not surpass two other stars, Joaquin Buckley and Antonia Shevchenko, to win the “Performance of the Night” award with prize money of 50 thousand dollars.

However, finding himself a bit flawed, UFC chairman Dana White personally brought the $ 50,000 cash to the champion, as compensation for his wrong decision.

Of course, the martial artist nicknamed “God of War” could not hide his joy when his efforts were recognized. This is the number he deserves besides the 260,000 dollars in remuneration at the event.

Here, just 20 days after the UFC 255 event, Deiveson Figueiredo continues to take on the task of protecting the belt when facing Brandon Moreno at UFC 256, making him the fastest consecutive champion in the tournament.

If successful, the Brazilian boxer will further enhance his position. Currently, Deiveson Figueiredo holds a record 7 finishing victories in the Flyweight category – on par with former champion Demetrious Johnson.

Deiveson’s potential rivals, in addition to Brandon Moreno, are former Bantamweight king Cody Garbrandt. This boxer had to withdraw at UFC 255 due to health problems.
