Gets title shot versus Moreno
FlyweightUFC
September 15, 2021
Figueiredo will challenge Brandon Moreno (foot) for the UFC Flyweight Championship at UFC 269, Brett Okamoto of ESPN.com reports.
ANALYSIS

No-shows UFC 263 loss, drops belt
FlyweightUFC
June 12, 2021
Figueiredo lost his UFC Flyweight Championship on Saturday, falling to Brandon Moreno via submission (rear-naked choke) at 2:26 of Round 3 at UFC 263 in Glendale, Arizona.
ANALYSIS
The first fight between these two, which took place last December and was ultimately ruled a draw, was a back-and-forth war. This was a lopsided affair in which Figueiredo wasn't the least bit competitive. That's not to take anything away from Moreno, who was brilliant, but Figueiredo looked so bad that it wouldn't be the least bit surprising to find out he was dealing with an injury or something. He was suspiciously inactive and allowed Moreno to dominate no matter where the fight took place. It could have just been an off night, but Figueiredo has looked like a dominant physical force (even in the previous draw) throughout the duration of his UFC run, and he was the furthest thing from that on Saturday. Given the Brazilian's talent level and lack of depth in the division, there appears to be an overwhelming likelihood that Figueiredo works his way back into the title picture before too long.
Books title rematch with Moreno
FlyweightUFC
February 25, 2021
Figueiredo (toe/biceps) agreed Thursday to take on Brandon Moreno (shoulder/arm) in a flyweight title rematch June 12 at UFC 263, Ariel Helwani of ESPN.com reports.
ANALYSIS
Figueiredo (20-1-1) retained his title belt after fighting Moreno (18-5-2) to a draw at UFC 256 in Las Vegas back in December, though both flyweights came out of the bout with six-month medical suspension. Both should be back to full health by the summer, at which point Figueiredo will put his belt on the line once again. Including his draw with Moreno, "Deus da Guerra" is unbeaten in his last six fights.

Figueiredo must wait six months or receive clearance from doctors before participating in his next fight due to suffering a broken toe and a bicep injury in the fight against Brandon Moreno, Marc Raimondi of ESPN.com reports.
ANALYSIS
Figueiredo is officially facing a six-month medical suspension, but that tag will be dropped if he is able to gain clearance from doctors before next June. The current Flyweight champ has yet to schedule his next opponent after his bout with Moreno ended in a tie last Saturday.
Still champ after legendary draw
FlyweightUFC
December 12, 2020
Figueiredo and Brandon Moreno fought to a draw (47-46, 46-46, 46-46) in their UFC Flyweight Championship fight at UFC 256 on Saturday in Las Vegas.
ANALYSIS
It should have been a victory for Figueiredo and would have been was he not (correctly) docked a point by referee Jason Herzog for a vicious low blow in Round 3. Most everyone thought this would be a cake walk for the champion, but Moreno gave Figueiredo all he could handle and then some in what was one of the best fights in recent memory. The two stood toe-to-toe and went blow-for-blow for the vast majority of the 25-minute bout. Figueiredo unloaded and Moreno ate whatever was thrown his way and returned fire. Figueiredo undoubtedly had the bigger moments in the fight, but Moreno appeared to be the better conditioned athlete and scored points in the later stages of rounds. Figueiredo pounds the body better than most any fighter in the sport today. He strings together combinations and has an iron chin. The Brazilian can be a bit reckless at times, but that aggressive style of fighting hasn't hurt him yet. Most everyone would agree that Figueiredo is a more naturally gifted fighter than Moreno but the later put forth an incredible display of heart to get this thing to the final bell. Figueiredo walked away with his coveted championship but no one should be surprised to see the UFC match these two against each other once again. It appears to be the only logical conclusion given how this fight went and the lack of depth in the division, especially given the fact that both men walked away with $50,000 Fight of the Night bonuses here.
