Deiveson Figueiredo's journey through the UFC ranks has seen its fair share of twists and turns. Originally scheduled for a 2020 showdown, his flyweight title fight with Cody Garbrandt fell through, leading Figueiredo to defend his title against Alex Perez and engage in a thrilling four-fight saga with Brandon Moreno.

Having moved up to the bantamweight class, Figueiredo debuted with a victory over Rob Font at the end of 2023, just as Garbrandt returned to the bantamweight division after a brief stint at flyweight. Fresh off his second consecutive win at UFC 296, Garbrandt wasted no time calling out Deiveson Figueiredo, reigniting their rivalry and setting the stage for a compelling matchup at UFC 300.

Figueiredo is all in for the challenge, expressing excitement about finally clashing with Garbrandt. "We had our disagreements at flyweight, but now here we are at bantamweight, and it's going to happen," Figueiredo shared with excitement. Despite a past filled with competitive banter, Figueiredo acknowledged a mutual respect that adds an interesting layer to their upcoming battle.

The fight holds a special place for Figueiredo, marking his first time opening a UFC event. He's looking forward to kicking off UFC 300 on a high note, then enjoying the rest of the evening with his family, who will be cheering him on from the stands. A family man at heart, Figueiredo is fueled by the presence of his loved ones, ready to showcase his skills against Garbrandt.

With his eyes on a future title shot and a potential bout against bantamweight champion Sean O'Malley, Figueiredo is not only aiming to settle scores but also to ascend once more to championship glory. As UFC 300 approaches, the anticipation builds for what promises to be a memorable fight night.
