Figueiredo’s head coach Wallid Ismael said, “Figueiredo has a personal problem with Moreno. The last fight Moreno told the press, ‘Hey, Deiveson was not hurt, he was not sick.’ Brandon Moreno called the champ a liar.”
He mocked Moreno and called him a cry baby, he said, “He wants to destroy Moreno in the first round. He’s not the ‘Assassin Baby.’ He’s the crybaby. He’s gonna make Brandon Moreno cry.”
June 12th he’ll get what he deserves,” Deiveson Figueiredo issues a warning for Brandon Moreno
Figueiredo was sick before their first fight at UFC 256, and according to him that affected his performance, Moreno called out the champ after the fight and said that he was just making an excuse.
Obviously, Figueiredo didn’t like it, and he is going to make Moreno pay for this one, in the same vlog he said, “Moreno knows I wasn’t 100 percent in our last match. I do not like to criticize anyone so I’ll just say that on June 12th he’ll get what he deserves.”
Figueiredo vs Moreno 2 can be a rematch for the ages, Moreno’s life has considerable changed since the last fight and now that he has seen the limelight that comes within the belt he sure isn’t going to let this one away easily.
