A new threat is reportedly making his way to the UFC, as the promotion has signed Francisco Figueiredo, brother of UFC flyweight champion Deiveson Figueiredo, to a deal.
MMA Fighting reported the news.
Figueiredo (11-3-1-1NC) enters the promotion having won two of his last four fights, with those wins coming over Vitor Leonardo and Manoel Moreira Dos Santos Jr. Figueiredo hasn’t competed in over a year, with his last fight happening at Jungle Fight 95 in September of 2019. Figueiredo has suffered a total of three losses as a professional MMA fighter, with one of them coming to former UFC fighter John Lineker. Figueiredo has competed a total of 16 times as a professional MMA fighter and just three of them went the distance.
There is no word at this time as to when Figueiredo will make his promotional debut or whom that bout will come against.
