His second setback in the UFC took place in his rematch against Brandon Moreno at UFC 263 back in June 2021. The Mexican managed to submit 'Deus da Guerra' in the third round to lay claim to his UFC flyweight title. Moreno used a rear-naked choke to force Figueiredo to tap out.

The only draw of the Brazilian's career also came against Brandon Moreno. UFC 256 saw Moreno and Figueiredo lock horns for the first time. The judges scored the fight as a majority draw after a grueling five-rounder.

Tensions ran high as Deiveson Figueiredo faced off against Brandon Moreno for perhaps the last time at the UFC 270 ceremonial weigh-ins. Dana White was forced to step in between the fighters to keep them apart.

It was in the midst of this chaos that Figueiredo flipped Moreno the bird. However, Moreno, unfazed, maintained his chirpy demeanor and merely smiled back at his opponent.
