Who will win UFC 256 Figueiredo vs Moreno?
Figueiredo, 32, boasts a 20-1 record, is the deserved favourite and we think will be too strong for Moreno. The former bricklayer, hairdresser and sushi chef has won 5 straight fights since his last defeat in March 2019. Moreno, 27, has an 18-1-5 record and admits he faces a tough task in Las Vegas.
"He has really good abilities; I can't lie and say he doesn't," Moreno said. "He is powerful and he can take the damage well. But I'm faster than him and I can give out some damage, too. I am more technical than he is and with my speed and my technical (ability), I believe I can do this."
