Deiveson Figueiredo Says He’s Going To Take Garbrandt’s Head Off.
Figueiredo made quite the statement on his Instagram on Thursday promising to knock out the former UFC Batamweight champ.
Considering both fighters are knockout artists, this matchup has Fight Of The Year written all over it. Garbrandt is 12-3 with 10 knockouts while Figueiredo holds a record of 19-1 with 9 knockouts. UFC 255 looks to be a stacked card with bouts such as Shevchenko vs Maia, Rua vs Craig, and Moreno vs Perez announced recently.
