    Brandon Moreno laughs off Deiveson Figueiredo’s comments


    ANAHEIM, Calif. – Brandon Moreno doesn’t seem to understand the hostility coming from Deiveson Figueiredo going into UFC 270.

    Moreno (19-5-2 MMA, 7-2-2 UFC) and Figueiredo (20-2-1 MMA, 9-2-1 UFC) have come into Saturday’s flyweight title trilogy fight with two different demeanors. The champion said he has “so much respect” for his opponent, while the challenger made it clear there’s bad blood on his end.

    That spilled over into Thursday’s pre-fight press conference, where Figueiredo made his disdain for Moreno quite clear.

    “Brandon Moreno (is a) crybaby,” Figueiredo told reporters, including MMA Junkie. “He’s crybaby motherf*cker. Yeah, motherf*cker. I’m going to knock you out.”

    Moreno was quite amused by Figueiredo’s verbal onslaught, and could only laugh at the aggression of his opponent going into the co-main event matchup at Honda Center, which airs on pay-per-view following prelims on ESPN and ESPN+.

    “Why you try so hard, man? Just stop,” Moreno said. “Money? Fame? I know you’re a nice guy, man. Just stop.”
