Betting on Figueiredo vs Moreno 4
Figueiredo and Moreno first shared the octagon together at UFC 256 towards the end of 2020. The odds for their first bout were heavily in favor of Figueiredo, who had demolished his way to the top of the 125-pound division.
It turned out to be a five-round war that had fans on their feet, the result was a draw that set up the immediate rematch. Figueiredo vs Moreno 2 went down at UFC 263, where Moreno put on a clinical display and submitted Figueiredo to claim the 125-pound strap. Once again Moreno was the betting underdog for the rematch, averaging around +200 on most online sportsbooks.

Out of the three fights so far, the third bout was the closest of all three I believe even more so than the first bout which I had Moreno winning. For Moreno to enter the fourth fight as the betting favorite tells us that the oddsmakers are finally warming up to the fan-friendly Mexican.
At 34 years of age could we see signs of Figueiredo slowing down in their next bout? The addition of Henry Cejudo certainly made an improvement to Figgys game-plan. However, I see Moreno finding more moments to shine if he chooses to not get into a back and forth war.
BISPING: Figueiredo vs Moreno UFC flyweight title FIGHT No.4 MUST HAPPEN next!
UFC International Fight Week
Currently, the only major UFC fight scheduled for next month in the International Fight Week pay-per-view card on July 2 with UFC 276. The only reservation for that card at this time is a women’s flyweight battle between former bantamweight champion Miesha Tate and former title contender Lauren Murphy.
Deiveson Figueiredo vs. Moreno part 4 in July? Gotta be during International Fight Week 2022. Anaheim already got their chance to host. It’s Las Vegas’ turn and Brandon lives here. The draw at UFC 256 in 2020 was inside the Apex with no fans. #UFC276
