In the historic fourth matchup between them, Moreno (21-5-2 MMA, 9-2-2 UFC) secured a third-round TKO win by doctor’s stoppage due to a cut over Figueiredo (21-3-1 MMA, 10-3-1 UFC) at Jeunesse Arena in Rio de Janeiro to improve to 2-1-1 in their respective series. No win was more critical than this one, though, because the Mexican advanced from interim to undisputed champion with the win.
