“Dear Dana White, I want to thank you for the opportunity you have given me, my family, and my country,” the Brazilian wrote on social media. “You know that I am ready to fight anyone, anytime, anywhere. That’s why I wanted to fight Brandon Moreno for the fourth time because I know that’s what the fans want.”
“It was until the Moreno team crossed the line with their racist comments. They called me a monkey and went as far as photoshopping my monkey face. In this regard, as a world champion, I ask the UFC to take into account my wish – I want to fight Cara France, who deserves his title shot. #stopracism #weareunited
Last week it was reported that a fourth fight between Figueredo and Moreno was in development for July, however, last weekend, Cara France defeated Askar Askarov and challenged the champion, receiving the Brazilian’s immediate consent.
