    I fought him in 21 days and we tied. I won, of course in the fight, they took a point. He did a little show saying I stuck my finger in his eye. Anyway, if it hadn't been for the stitches, I would have won the fight. I immediately gave him the rematch and now he's denying me. Even so, I'll keep cursing him for giving me this rematch.

    Moreno should not be obliged imo, Figgy should need another top 5 win for a shot.

    Moreno Bless!

    The first fight was competitive and a draw. So rematch made sense. But the rematch was a complete domination by Brandon. It wasnt even close. So obviously nobody wants a trilogy and Deveison should probably move up because he struggles alot to cut to 125

    depends. Figgy is a good dance partner who can make them both a lot of money in the 3rd fight.

    I thought he looked absolutely diabolically shit in the rematch, had it at all been competitive then maybe.

    Absolutely no reason for an immediate trilogy fight. Deiveson got his ass handed to him.

    As for the first fight, Deiveson is delusional. It was a great fight but he clearly committed fouls.

    He got a rematch because Fig fought to a draw after fouling him. Then Moreno Convincingly stopped Fig. When you get finished convincingly. You don't deserve a rematch. Unless you maybe have some sort of really bolstered legacy before you lost. But Fig does not have that. Go win another fight fig as it's now been 2 fights in a row where you haven't been able to come away with the W.

    He doesn't have a valid point.

    You usually have a rematch after a draw especially in a title fight. No need for a rematch after one fighter dominated the other.

    Figgy vs. Garbrandt for number one contender seemed like the logical fight to make. I'm not sure what they do with figgy now. Maybe they give him Askarov?

    They don't need to fight 3 times in a row. Other guys in division deserve a shot too.

    That would be a very interesting fight i'd love to see, but then who does Moreno fight if not Askarov next?

    I thought moreno won the first fight and thought it was bs that it was a draw especially after the deduction, but that being said. It's not about competition I'm selling it on it. I'm selling on it promotion. You can sell footage of the first fight, you can sell the moreno knockdown and choke, and you can sell Wallid's WWE style trashtalking. Mexicans were booing the fuck out of Figgy.

    Fight wise, it makes no sense, but there's not a lot of fights fans want to see with flyweights. Lets keep it real. This division was almost cut.

    Looking at the FLW rankings, there is little for him to do outside a rematch with Moreno and a fight with Askarov.

    Fig has wins over #3 Pantoja, #4 Perez, #5 Benavidez

    Does he fight Royval if they beat Pantoja? The division badly needs a Garbrandt win or could use MM or Cejudo back.

    Weird false equivalence. A draw and a dominant finish are very different outcomes. Figueiredo doesn’t deserve an immediate rematch, but he’s just one win away.

    I presume you mean you thought Figgy won the 1st fight? From a promotion point of view you are right, a 3rd fight has $ potential for the reasons you listed, but if Figgy could convincingly beat Askarov or Cody or some shit then the 3rd fight is a lot more sellable and makes a lot more sense.. Trouble is there aren't many top contenders or highly popular stars in that division right now.

    Figgy should have looked better in fight 2 than 1, but he came with Tyron Woodley output.. As a 33 year old Flyweight who struggles with weight cuts, I don't think he has much time left at the top.

    Half of the title fights he's been in were marred by his fouls and lack of professionalism. He's entitled and delusional if he thinks anyone owes him anything.

    Figueiredo saved the FLW division, if this were purely about him getting another title shot then he 100% deserves an automatic rematch.

    But Figueiredo does not appear to be able to consistently make FLW healthy and in a state that allows him to perform to the best of his abilities.

    Even if Figueiredo wins the rematch, the same issue that impeded his performance against Moreno will arise again against a different challenger.

    Figgy needs to demonstrate he can make the weight and perform to the best of his abilities or move up to BW and it really appears the latter is where he should be.

    I like Figgy and JBG disciple who is entertaining to watch, but, the reality is that his weight cutting finally caught up to him at FLW.

    He cant perform the same way, he practically was crying last time when he made 125lb.

    For his longevity just take a break or move up.
