This week’s Bola da Vez guest is Deiveson Figueiredo, current UFC flyweight champion, who participated in the program and spoke about his opponents Brandon Moreno and Cody Garbrandt. With the presentation of André Plihal and the participation of Igor Resende, of the ESPN.com.br portal and of the journalist Adriano Wilkson, Bola da Vez will be the attraction of ESPN Brasil this Saturday at 22h.
Deiveson won the UFC flyweight division belt in July by submitting Joseph Benavidez (USA) in the first round. However, despite his great performance, another Brazilian rival, the Mexican Brandon Moreno, was one of the great critics of his fight.
– Brandon Moreno is a guy who said he would have love to give me, brother … It made me upset with him, and when I get upset with the guy, I study to knock this guy out, and I find myself finishing him – said.
With a fight scheduled for November, against the American Cody Garbrandt, former champion of the bantamweight division, Deiveson revealed the expectation for his first belt defense.
– ‘No Love’ (Cody Garbrandt) is a guy I like a lot, good people, but the story changes when we are challenged. It will be a super fight, he is a striker guy, changer, good at boxing, which is also my thing. He can be knocked out, everything is a matter of study and timing. I’ll study to get him, you can be sure – comments the Brazilian fighter.
