Deiveson Figueiredo threatens UFC to leave flyweight division

All MMA News

“I was upset because I did not expect this from the UFC,” the Brazilian said in an interview with AgFight. “Just a few months ago, I had my last fight and they are already introducing an interim title? I’m at a loss. Yes, I did not accept the fight due to injury, but I fought not so long ago. I’ve always put on great shows and I feel underappreciated because of the interim championship belt.”

“I am extremely disappointed. I admit, I seriously think about how to leave this weight category. Henry Cejudo and I saved this division, and after this move by the UFC, I’m close to making a decision. In this case, I will move up to the bantamweight.”

Recall that the fight for the interim UFC flyweight championship belt between Brandon Moreno and Kai Cara-France will be the second most important event of the UFC 277 tournament, which will be held July 30 in Dallas.
