Deiveson Figueiredo requires ‘dream combat’ in opposition to former UFC champ after UFC 300 win

Deiveson Figueiredo targets Dominick Cruz after UFC 300

Throughout a latest interview with Brazilian publication Canal Encarada, Figueiredo referred to as for a shot at UFC legend Dominick Cruz.

“Individuals are pushing some names, however what I really need is to satisfy a dream combat of mine, which is to combat Dominick Cruz,” Figueiredo exclaimed. “It might be wonderful to combat at [UFC 303] in June, that relies on [Cruz]. If he indicators the contract, I’m prepared. I need to combat him, and I believe he’s a man who can take me to a title shot.”

As of this writing, Cruz hasn’t addressed Figueiredo’s callout, and he hasn’t hinted at when he may doubtlessly return to the Octagon.

Cruz hasn’t fought since a TKO loss to Marlon Vera in Aug. 2022. Earlier than that, he earned back-to-back determination wins over Pedro Munhoz and Casey Kenney in 2021.

Figueiredo’s latest addition to the bantamweight title combine provides much more crowding into the division. A win over one other former champion like Cruz may show to the UFC matchmakers that he’s a reliable title risk within the stacked group.

Figueiredo stays a harmful out for many of the prime bantamweights and flyweights, and a matchup with Cruz may very well be sufficient to earn him a potential No. 1 contender combat.
