Brandon Moreno and Deiveson Figueiredo had a fight of the year contender in the primary party of UFC 256 and Moreno did it with a damage shoulder.
Figueiredo was seeking to protect his belt versus Moreno just three weeks just after each men fought. It was a extremely intriguing matchup and early on in the fight, the Mexican exposed he popped his shoulder out.
“I really do not feel it is broken, but I threw as well several jabs, and I felt something in my shoulder,” Moreno mentioned. “After that, I felt amazing. I experience actually very good, to be sincere. [I threw the jab very hard], and a little something popped in my shoulder. But I imagine it is great.”
For the duration of the battle, Moreno claims the adrenaline was operating superior so he did not really discover nearly anything improper. On the other hand, right after the battle ended and it was introduced a attract, when he got to the back again, the adrenaline started out to use off and the soreness became obvious.
“To be honest, I come to feel also a lot ache in all my human body,” Moreno explained on the ESPN+ put up-battle present. “But at the same time, I truly feel so content. I needed to provide that joy to my region and my family. But it is what it is. I’m so content to choose this chance, and I’m all set to be with my household and young children.”
It is unbelievable each Moreno and Figueiredo went 5 rounds with the conditions they have. They will now have time to heal and have their rematch sometime in 2021.
