Brazilian fans at UFC 283 did not take kindly to Brandon Moreno’s victory over Deiveson Figueiredo for the Flyweight Championship and some threw their drinks at the new title holder, who had to be escorted backstage by the security team so that his physical condition would not be in danger, even more so after his fight. Recall that the native of Mexico won by technical knockout due to an eye injury from Brazil.
At the press conference after the event (via BJPENN.COM):
“It was funny. Even I didn’t expect that. I think in the end people will be very happy with my performance, but I don’t know. I was just trying to enjoy the moment. It was crazy how all the bodyguards were around me. They are pushing me, I throw the belt on the floor… It was fun”.
Moreno now wants his first belt defense to be in his home country.. He had a backstage incident with Alexandre Pantoja, so this could be his next rival. And he has already anticipated that he is willing to go to Mexico to face him, remembering that he defeated him in 2018. So we will see what we know soon about the new fight for the UFC Flyweight Championship.
