As per the report from Brett Okamoto, The trilogy is on. Brandon Moreno will defend his title against Deiveson Figueiredo at UFC 269 on December 11, 2021.

UFC was looking into booking Moreno vs. Alexandre Pantoja, but Pantoja won’t be ready before end of the year. Moreno wanted to be active and was willing to fight any challenger.

The trilogy started taking the shape, when Figueiredo faced Brandon Moreno at UFC 256. After five rounds of back-and-forth fighting, the fight was declared a majority draw.

Figueiredo had a point taken from him by referee Jason Herzog in the 3rd round for a low blow: the foul proved crucial as it turned two 48-47 scorecards in his favor into even 47-47 decisions, with the third judge seeing the fight 48-46 for the champion. Both men won the Fight of the Night award.

A rematch with Moreno took place on June 12, 2021 at UFC 263. He lost the bout and the title via a rear naked choke submission in round three.
