Deiveson Figueiredo promises to take revenge against Brandon Moreno for betraying Henry Cejudo
While speaking to Schmo, Deiveison Figueiredo said that he wasn’t at his best during the second fight against Moreno at UFC 263. However, Deus De Guerra has pledged that he will take revenge against the Mexican fighter in the trilogy fight at UFC 270. The Brazilian fighter also expressed that he will take retribution for Henry Cejudo as Brandon Moreno betrayed him.
This fight is going to be a wonderful fight. I’m very motivated and he betrayed Henry Cejudo. You know the history, yeah? Henry Cejudo let the cry baby, the assassin baby live two years in his house and after that cry baby Brandon Moreno get out and helped another guy to fight against Henry Cejudo.
He betrayed Henry Cejudo and Henry Cejudo is really pi**ed off and now it’s going to be revenge, it’s going to be a big revenge right now.”
To put things into context, Moreno stayed at Triple C’s house for two years. Although the Mexican fighter left for another camp and helped Benavidez prepare against Cejudo in 2016. After seeing Deiveson’s comments it looks like the rivalry between these two flyweights has reignited.
