Brandon Royval, UFC flyweight: I think Moreno is going to take it again. 

Chris Curtis, UFC middleweight: I’m going with Moreno. The dude is tough as nails, it’s his time and he’ll get past Figueiredo again.

Cody Stamann, UFC bantamweight: Brandon Moreno. He showed in the rematch he proved he wanted it more and I think the trilogy will be a blowout just like the rematch was.

Vince Morales, UFC bantamweight: Moreno will cement himself as the best flyweight again. He’ll finish Figueiredo again.

Terrance McKinney, UFC lightweight: I have to go with Brandon Moreno. The rematch wasn’t close so I think he has Figueiredo’s number.

Jason Witt, UFC welterweight: I still got Moreno. He has Figueiredo’s number now and is the better fighter.

Ramiz Brahimaj, UFC welterweight: I have to go with Moreno in that one. He dominated Figueiredo and I don’t see how that changes this time around.
