The UFC Flyweight champion, Deiveson Figueiredo will be returning back to action at UFC 263 to face Brandon Moreno. This time ‘Dues Da Gueraa’ will look to settle his score with Moreno, for their first fight which ended as a draw on UFC 256.

Deiveson Figueiredo started his reign in the UFC Flyweight division since he defeated Joseph Benavidez in the match for the vacant Flyweight championship. Ahead of his match with Moreno, Figueiredo also talked about the hypothetical situation of fights against Henry Cejudo and Demetrious Johnson.

In his latest interview with Ag Fight, talking about Cejudo, Figueiredo says, “I think he’ll be fighting again very soon, maybe not at flyweight, which is my division. Maybe bantamweight or featherweight.”

“I don’t think he has the size to compete at featherweight, but I hope that my first bantamweight fight could be against him. I hope he accepts to fight me, and that Dana accepts to pay us a nice purse. You can be sure that it would be Fight of the Night.” {H/T BloodyElbow}

Deiveson Figueiredo believes Demetrious Johnson will face the same end

While talking about the original Flyweight fighter, Demetrious Johnson, Figueiredo gives him more praise than Cejudo. But he claims in the end, he’ll be facing the same end.

Figueiredo says, “I was surprised by Johnson’s loss to Adriano Moraes in ONE. He’s a very versatile guy. You don’t know if he’s going to strike or take you down. The Brazilian had a great gameplan.”

“He kept moving in front of him and didn’t give Johnson a chance to take him down. Then his hand landed. It landed and shut him down. It knocked ‘Minnie Mouse’ out cold.”

Deiveson Figueiredo added, “Henry Cejudo would be knocked out in a fight against him. Demetrious Johnson would be submitted. I would catch them both.” {H/T BloodyElbow}

Right now, Figueiredo is focused to win his match against Moreno. Before his last draw, he was on a five-fight winning streak with four of them coming via finish.

The first faceoff between both of them delivered sheer violence and the fans are waiting to see something the same at UFC 263.
