Eventually, the Mexican got out of the hold and the fight went back on to feet.  Both the fighters went on to connect a few kicks before Figueiredo managed to get Moreno into an ankle lock.  However, Moreno slipped out of it as the round came to an end.

The second round was dominated by Figueiredo, first, he managed to take down Moreno after getting hold of his kicks. Then he countered Moreno’s punches with a hook of his own. Figueiredo even escaped a takedown quickly to lock Moreno in a guillotine hold. As the round was about to end Moreno tried to get some offense. 

The third round started with Moreno on the front foot. Figueiredo complained about an eye poke from Moreno but the fight went on. Moreno managed to take Figueiredo to the ground and kept bashing his opponents from the top. The round ended with Figueiredo with a big swollen right eye. The fourth round was canceled after Figueiredo’s doctor declared him unable to continue the fight after his eye was completely shut down.
