‘Shredded or shrivelled?’: Crazy footage emerges of weight-drained UFC champ: Ultimate Guide – Fox Sports

Footage has emerged of UFC flyweight champion Deiveson Figueiredo looking remarkably shredded as he faces off against Brandon Moreno for the fourth time at UFC 283.
The duo share a remarkable rivalry with both men having one win each after they drew their first fight, with Figueiredo the one who emerged victorious in the most recent bout to take back his flyweight belt.

The 35-year-old has also left no stone unturned in his preparation for the epic fight, with the champ looking insanely cut two days out from the official weigh-ins in a video posted online.
However, several fight fans were worried about how drained Figueiredo looked given he still had some time before he had to step onto the scales.
Bellator fighter Jornel Lugo wrote on Twitter: “Damn imagine cutting all that weight but you still have 2 more days of cutting.”
CBS Sports combat reporter Shakiel Mahjouri said: “Is Deiveson Figueiredo looking shredded or shrivelled to you?”

Given the difficulty of the weight cut, it’s no surprise Figueiredo plans on moving up to the bantamweight division after Sunday’s bout and chase double-champ status, but only if his good friend Henry Cejudo doesn’t return and win the belt before he does.

“My goal is to move up,” Figueiredo told Ag Sport.
“I want to do this fight and ask for a fight at bantamweight. I want to test myself there.
“That doesn’t mean I’m leaving weight class for good. I want to test myself.
“If Cejudo has the belt, that guy is like a brother to me. I would never fight him. Today, he’s my brother.
“Nevertheless, I want to fight someone at bantamweight. If Cejudo doesn’t take the belt, I’m asking for a title fight. Belt against belt.
“I own the flyweight one and I want to fight for the bantamweight one.”
