Joe Rogan doubts Deiveson Figueiredo guarantees for 125 go back, calls Moreno vs. Kara-France ‘actual international resolve combat’
If Deiveson Figueiredo heard what Joe Rogan needed to say about his flyweight go back, he’s going to have had phrases for the longtime UFC commentator.
Rogan made a dangling commentary in every single place the initial broadcast of UFC 277, calling Saturday’s co-headliner between Brandon Moreno and Kai Kara-France “the actual international resolve combat.”
“I don’t suppose we’re ever going to look Deiveson Figueiredo down at 125 all over again, and I consider the ones two gents, there’s an actual just right argument that Moreno gained that ultimate combat as well,” mentioned Rogan to fellow commentators Jon Anik and Daniel Cormier. “In order that is, personally, that’s the arena resolve combat correct there.”
Figueiredo not too long ago suggested MMA Preventing’s Trocação Franca that he’s going to attend UFC 277 and take a seat down down cageside for Moreno vs. Kara-France 2, a rematch put in combination after he used to be as soon as once not in a position to protect his resolve because of hand and knee accidents.
The flyweight champ do away with a long-discussed transfer to bantamweight, seeing a chronic wait because of the present checklist of contenders, and is desirous about protecting his resolve in his local Brazil.
“My combat is to send this fit to Brazil,” Figueiredo mentioned. “Since they’re doing a UFC right kind proper right here, I wish to ensure that they information my combat for Brazil. I wish to combat whoever wins [at UFC 277], whoever this is, to stand me right kind proper right here beneath my crowd.”
Figueiredo recaptured the flyweight resolve in a trilogy towards Moreno at UFC 270. That left the combatants at 1-1-1 and spurred keep in touch of a fourth combat because of the competitiveness of the matchup.
Then again quickly after, Figueiredo perceived to bitter at the concept that that of a fourth combat and as an alternative gave the impression towards champ-champ standing. Then he battled in conjunction with his supervisor over his pay for the Moreno trilogy and signed with a brand new rep, former UFC figther Tiki Ghosn, to be able to brighten his probabilities.
“I admit I’ve the need to switch as much as 135,” Figueiredo suggested Trocação Franca. “I don’t know when, perfect God is aware of that. [But] so long as I’m having superb fortune at 125 and feature someone to downside me, leisure confident that I’ll proceed protecting what’s mine.”
Rogan’s commentary on Figueiredo wouldn’t be the primary time he has engaged in hyberbole whilst assessing a fighter’s profession. In particular when pitching pay-per-view collaborating in taking part in playing cards on TV, he regularly makes eye-raising statements at the importance of positive fights or combatants. Occasionally, however, does he undercut energetic champions.
