Brandon Moreno and Deiveson Figueiredo are going to settle their trilogy fight this Saturday in the co-main of the UFC 270. Moreno is defending his championship for the first time against the same opponent he took it from in their second fight. Figueiredo has since changed camp to train with the king of cringe Henry Cejudo and his coach Eric Albarracin.
Moreno loves Legos and is a total Lego nerd. Albarracin was seen to instruct Figueiredo to shoot a Lego belt, which Moreno found very cringe. Though Moreno applauded the challenger and his team for doing these things as these will bring more attention to the fight and it would sell more PPVs. Moreno as champion gets the cut from PPV and he admired the efforts made by his opponent and his team.
“I’m a lucky guy, I’m a really lucky guy. It don’t feel naturanl in me to trash-talking social media or talk sh*t with somebody but I’m a lucky guy because other people sell tickets for me. So, that job they can take that part, that’s it.”
When asked if he had seen Deiveson Figueiredo shooting a Lego belt, Moreno said, “That is so crazy, that’s so fake, I mean my respect, they are the king of the cringe, my respect.”
