Brandon Moreno has put Deiveson Figueiredo on blast for suggesting a BMF flyweight title fight with former UFC two-division champ Henry Cejudo, reminding ‘Deus Da Guerra’ that the two have unfinished business following their five-round slug fest at UFC 256 that saw the latter retain his flyweight title with a majority draw.

“Hey @daico_deusdaguerra I heard you want to be the flyweight BMF, but I want to ask you how you want to be a BMF if you can’t beat a little Mexican kid, I don’t want to talk sh*t about you brother, you know, not my style,I just want to remember you have unfinish business with me.

“I know you don’t want to see me again in a long time but tell me what kind of champion you are ?PD.- you need to fight if you want to buy more of those f*cking ugly clothes you wear.@wallidjfc translate please.End of the message. !!” Moreno posted on Instagram last week.

Is Moreno hyping up their inevitable rematch or does the 27-year-old Mexican scrapper have a legitimate grievance with the reigning flyweight champion? Only time will tell, but this has all the makings of one of the most exciting rivalries in UFC flyweight history.
