Moreno and Figueredo have shared the octagon for more than an hour. In the 3 championship fights, two have gone the distance while one saw Moreno brutally beaten up and finish the champion. It is the second bout that adds so much steam to Moreno’s claim to an undisputed title rematch as he was the only one to get a finish in their trilogy. As their first bout was a draw the score stands at 1-1 and hence a rubber match makes the most sense.

Talking to Ariel Helwani on The MMA hour Moreno shared his feelings on having to fight for the interim title instead of challenging for the undisputed belt he lost in a close fight.
