    Brandon Moreno, Deiveson Figueiredo trilogy staredown


    ANAHEIM, Calif. – Brandon Moreno and Deiveson Figueiredo had yet another faceoff on Thursday’s following the UFC 270 pre-fight press conference.

    Moreno (19-5-2 MMA, 7-2-2 UFC) and Figueiredo (20-2-1 MMA, 9-2-1 UFC) are set to clash in a third consecutive UFC flyweight championship bout – all of which have occurred within a 406-day stretch. They’ve spent more than 30 minutes in the octagon together, and even more time outside of it when including all the media obligations.

    The pre-fight staredowns between Moreno, 28, the reigning 125-pound titleholder, and Figueiredo, 34, have ranged from pleasant to confrontational, so it was relatively unknown what was going to happen when they came face-to-face for the first time ahead of UFC 270.

    Both men kept civil and acted in a professional manner after answering questions from the media ahead of Saturday’s co-main event trilogy fight, which takes place at Honda Center and airs on pay-per-view following prelims on ESPN and ESPN+.

    Watch the video above to see the first UFC 270 fight week faceoff between Moreno and Figueiredo.
