Top UFC lightweight Justin Gaethje spoke out about Brazilian Deiveson Figueiredo, who lost his flyweight championship belt to Mexican Brandon Moreno at UFC 283.
During the fight, Figueiredo gave Moreno an illegal head kick. The Brazilian later said Moreno hit him in the eye with his finger, but the referee thought the punch was clean and continued the fight.
Figueiredo is the dirtiest fighter in the UFC.
As a reminder, Moreno defeated Figueiredo by third-round technical knockout at UFC 283 on Jan. 22.
In January, 2022, at UFC 270, Figueiredo defeated Moreno by unanimous decision. The 35-year-old Figueiredo has 21 wins and three losses under his belt.
