This all assumes Figgy stays at 125, talk of Figgy to 135 (which I think he should do) can be a different thread. An interesting thing pops up when you look at the UFC rankings. I hate immediate rematches for champs unless a draw like controversy, or someone with 5+ title defenses. Askar Askarov should fight Moreno next for the belt. 3-0-1 in UFC with wins of Joey B, Pantoja, and a draw in 2019 to Moreno. Easy decision there. So then the smartest thing to me would be, Figgy fights someone else with the winner, whether Figgy or the other guy, getting the title shot after Moreno or Askarov. But on the rankings, you gotta dive deep before you find a guy who doesn't already have a recent loss to either Figgy or Moreno. #1 Figgy needs a dance partner #2 Askar gets next title shot #3 Pantoja lost to Figgy 2019 #4 Perez lost to Figgy in 2020 #5 Joey B lost to Figgy twice in 2020 #6 Royval lost to Moreno in 2020 #7 Kai Kara France lost to Moreno in 2020 #8 Rogerio Bronton hasn't lost to either guy, but has lost 2 of his last 3 #9 Matt Schnell, also lost two of his last 3 #10 Tim Elliot Lost to Figgy in 2019 So what do you do with 125 pound Figgy? Ideally, he'd be paired up with someone he hasn't already beat so that he can slide back up for a 3rd fight with Moreno, and someone Moreno hasn't also beat recently so that if they win it's an easy title fight to sell. But that matchup really doesn't exist.
