Deiveson Figueiredo is a fighter who likes to show off. He came from winning by submission to Benavidez in July and repeated the triumph mode against Alex Pérez. This time it took less time, and it is that in the stellar of UFC 255, the Brazilian finished with his opponent in just 117 seconds. A real outrage, since the completion came after an action that demonstrates its quality. Then it was time to look to the future. Brandon Moreno had won the co-star duels and the monarch was clear: “Brandon if you want to fight come. Let’s do it in december“, he snapped. The craving is great because of the haste.
The fight began with Figueiredo trying to command with his striking. Soon, Pérez took his right leg and that was his mistake. He tried to knock him down, but the Brazilian defended himself well, it was he who went to the ground and there with a guillotonin, after a quick transition from the leg, put an end to the fight. Figueiredo is confirmed as a solid mochaweight champion and is now seeking Mandon Moreno.
Valentina Shevchenko was a roller
Valentina shevchenko He searched for his sister after speaking for ESPN. They both congratulated each other on making history. They became the first pair of sisters to fight on the same card at the same weight … and they both won (her mother had done it in a muay thai event, in which she was proclaimed world champion). The most important triumph was that of Valentina, exposing the flyweight title. He had to work this time, but he knew how to cancel out the virtues of Jennifer Maia, whom he defeated by unanimous decision (triple 49-46).
The flyweight division runs out of rivals to defeat, and that is Valentina is undefeated in 6 fights and has been crossing with the one that has put her in front. Now it’s time to wait, although the champion wants a trilogy against Amanda Nunes (it would be in the pen). It doesn’t seem feasible in the short term. For now it is time for me to recover and return with charged batteries. “Tomorrow I will think about what to do and see when I want to return “, he pointed.
The fight went from less to more. Shevchenko controlled all aspects in four of the five rounds. In the second, Maia put pressure against the cage and wanted to control on the ground. It was a mirage, because in the others, Valentina deciphered well the plan that her rival chose and proved it. Good kicks and above all straight blows that were disarming the Brazilian and gave her the victory.
