Mexican mixed martial artist Brandon Moreno has admitted that he doesn’t like the way his future opponent, UFC flyweight champion Davison Figueiredo, speaks about his opponents before fights, but hopes that the Brazilian is thus promoting fights.
“From Figueiredo’s talk, he definitely underestimates me. I don’t know why he says all this. Maybe just trying to sell the fight. A few months ago, when Davison was supposed to fight Garbandt, I said that I didn’t like his relationship.
I don’t like this guy. Remember how he behaved disrespectfully towards Joseph Benavides and did not even gain weight before their first fight. Perhaps he was so emotionally angry about it. Still, I think he is trying to sell the fight in this way, but watch his interview. He speaks two or three words in Portuguese, and his manager gives out two or three sentences, ”Moreno said.
Recall that the duel between Davison Figueiredo and Brandon Moreno will be the main event of UFC 256, which will take place on December 12 at the Apex Arena in Las Vegas, USA.
Dana White explains mass firing of UFC fighters
UFC President Dana White, in a recent interview, announced a major purge in the ranks of the company’s fighters and promises about 60 layoffs. The first under the “hot hand” were veterans Anderson Silva and Yoel Romero, as well as several more newcomers to the league. White explained the action of the promotion.
“We have been taking the same steps for twenty years. For the past few months, we have hardly fired anyone. This has nothing to do with the company’s financial position. It’s just that during the pandemic, we didn’t do it.
If I were trying to save money, I would fire employees like any other company in America. This is how money is saved in situations like this. I have fulfilled all the conditions under the contracts with the fighters and have not fired a single employee, ”said White.
