Deiveson Figueiredo became the first two-time UFC flyweight champion in history Saturday when he dethroned Brandon Moreno to take the belt back at UFC 270.

Figueiredo (21-2-1 MMA, 10-2-1 UFC) fought rival Moreno (19-6-2 MMA, 7-3-2 UFC) for the third consecutive time in the co-main event at Honda Center in Anaheim, Calif. He emerged with a unanimous decision win, marking his second reign as 125-pound titleholder.

After fighting to a draw in he first meeting in December 2020, Moreno won the rematch by submission in June. The unprecedented trilogy fight, which unfolded just 406 days after the first clash, went the way of the Brazilian, and now the stage is potentially set for a fourth meeting.
