Deiveson Figueiredo has already started the process of promoting his UFC 255 fight against Cody Garbrandt.
Over the weekend the UFC flyweight champion used social media to deliver a message to his opponent in English, both via video and by text.
“[Cody Garbrandt] you think you are going to take my belt?” Figueiredo wrote on Instagram. “I go to sleep dreaming of taking your head off!!!! I wake up thinking of knocking you out. My whole day is dedicated to putting you to sleep!!!!”
Figueiredo claimed the vacant flyweight crown with a first-round submission of Joseph Benavidez at UFC Fight Night 172 on July 18. The 32-year-old Brazilian has won four straight UFC bouts and 19 of his 20 professional appearances overall.
A former bantamweight champion, Garbrandt will make his flyweight debut against Figueiredo. “No Love” is coming off a second-round KO of Raphael Assuncao in a 135-pound bout at UFC 250.
UFC 255 takes place on Nov. 21 and will also include a women’s flyweight title bout pitting Valentina Shevchenko against Jennifer Maia.
