The former Flyweight champion Brandon Moreno has also agreed to the fourth fight against Deiveson Figueiredo
“Even if I want to stop thinking about this guy, I feel I won the fight, but the guy has the belt,” Moreno said on The MMA Hour. “I’m thinking the belt, who has the belt, it’s that guy, so I can’t stop thinking about this. Right now, I put my manager to work to push hard for the fourth one. He said, ‘I can’t sleep until I get the fourth one right now.’ So he’s working so hard to make that happen, and right now I’m just trying to recover my body because at the end of the day, it was a real war between us, and my body right now is tired as always. I’m just trying to recover myself a little bit and be ready for the next step.”
“Obviously, I want the fourth fight. If it’s not happening immediately, I’m fighting with other guys, OK,” Moreno added. “But I want to fight against Figueiredo and finish this.”
