Tatiana Suarez Reveals She Has Suffered A "Very Bad Knee Injury" | Social Media Roundup

This past weekend at UFC 263, Deiveson Figueiredo lost his UFC flyweight title to Brandon Moreno via submission in the second round.

Although Figueiredo has been excellent at 125 pounds and managed to win and defend the belt multiple times, the weight cut was always something that took a lot out of him before he even entered the Octagon.

The Brazilian has teased a move up to the UFC's bantamweight division for a while now and that potential move seems very likely now as Figueiredo is now without a UFC title and does not have a certain next move in the flyweight division.

See what Figueiredo had to say about a potential move to bantamweight below.

Although Figueiredo has teased a move up in weight he is also interested in a trilogy fight with Brandon Moreno, and that is a fight which no fan would say no to.
