Deiveson Figueiredo wasn’t happy with Joe Rogan’s comments at UFC 277.
Before the pay-per-view kicked off, the commentators were talking about the fights to hype up the card. It was then that Rogan claimed the interim flyweight title fight between Brandon Moreno vs. Kai Kara-France that evening was for the real title. It was his opinion that Figueiredo wouldn’t fight in the division again.

“I don’t think we’re ever going to see Deiveson Figueiredo down at 125 [pounds] again, and I think those two gentlemen, there’s a real good argument that Moreno won that last fight as well,” said Rogan to his fellow commentators Jon Anik and Daniel Cormier. “So that is, in my opinion, that’s the world title fight right there.”
Soo… we go again? 👀

After hearing of those comments, Figueiredo was asked about it during a press conference on Saturday night and he made it clear he would be fighting at flyweight again.
