UFC 300 takes place on Saturday, April 13th at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada.

On the ticket is former UFC flyweight champion Deiveson Figueiredo (22-3 MM) who will collide with ex-bantamweight titleholder Cody Garbrandt (14-5 MMA) in a bantamweight bout.

‘Diaco’ most recently fought and defeated Rob Font (20-8 MMA) by unanimous decision last December. Prior to that victory, Figueiredo suffered a TKO loss at the hands of Brandon Moreno (21-8 MMA) at UFC 283.

‘No Love’ has won two in a row coming into UFC 300, his most recent KO victory was against Brian Kelleher (24-15 MMA) at UFC 296. Previous to that, Garbrandt had defeated Trevin Jones (14-11 MMA) in March of 2023 at UFC 284.

A very confident Deiveson Figueiredo, speaking with ‘MMA Fighting‘, voiced his strategy going into the fight with Cody Garbrandt:

“We see he’s mentally fragile. He doesn’t have a good head. We see he hasn’t come back after having a few losses, right? Every athlete fears getting touched. Many fighters like the in-fight but crumble when a hand lands. You have to be a badass, you need a strong mind to come back again. I think I’ll affect his mind by touching him, and he’s going to respect me more. I really want the knockout in this fight. This fight could lead me to a title, so I want to impress. It’s going to be an incredible fight.”
