Today’s dawn was a day of strong emotions for the UFC organization. After receiving the news that roosterweight champion (61 kg) Petr Yan was withdrawn from the event on December 12, promoters of the show saw in Deiveson Figueiredo the salvation for the last numbered card of the 2021 season.
According to the Russian website RT Sports, the cut of the athlete, who would put his title at stake against Aljamain Sterling, was motivated by problems with the withdrawal of his visa – the information was confirmed by the Ag Fight report with sources close to the UFC. Therefore, the name of the Brazilian Deiveson gained strength.
After submitting Alex Perez in the first round today, Deiveson was called up to defend his belt on December 12 against Brandon Moreno, Mexican number one in the ranking who fought on the same card and beat Brandon Royval in the opening round as well.
With the verbal agreement sealed by both parties, the teams now adjust contractual details – the announcement of the confrontation was revealed by ESPN and confirmed by the report by Ag. Fight. Thus, as speculated at the press conference after the event, Deiveson must remain in the city of Las Vegas (USA) to carry out his camp and cut weight.
