Last night, Deiveson Figueiredo defended his Flyweight title against Brandon Moreno, in what Dana White described as the best fight in the division’s history.
Although Figueiredo retained his title, it came at the cost of a five round war. His manager, Wallid Ismail has shared footage of him in hospital. You can see the footage below:
It’s safe to say that the Flyweight Champion won’t be having a quick turnaround again. Neither will his opponent, Moreno, who suffered an arm injury, among other things.
- Usman on breaking Covington’s jaw being “probably” one of the favorite moments in his career.
- Dana White unsure on Nick Diaz’ future: “Fighting is a young man’s game.”
- Garbrandt questions Dillashaw’s abilities without “having a needle shoved up his ass.”
- Dana White: “Imagine Chandler and Gaethje… that’d be a fun fight.”
