BJPENN.com Fighter Picks Deiveson Figueiredo vs. Brandon Moreno 4:
Cody Stamann, UFC bantamweight: I think Moreno has proven he’s the better fighter and I expect him to get it done in Brazil.
Thiago Moises, UFC lightweight: This should be a close fight, I think Figueiredo because he has more power, and fighting in Brazil will help him a lot while will hurt Moreno.
Brandon Royval, UFC flyweight: I think Moreno gets it done.
Billy Quarantillo, UFC featherweight: I’m going with Moreno. In the first three fights, he has the only definitive win with the other two being super close.
Damon Jackson, UFC featherweight: Moreno, 100%. I think he won the last one so I’ll take him again.
Dan Ige, UFC featherweight: I’m going with Moreno by decision.
Terrance McKinney, UFC lightweight: I gotta go with Moreno, I think he’s the more well-rounded fighter and gets a decision.
Bryan Battle, UFC welterweight: I got Brandon Moreno. The one concern is Moreno needed a new camp like a month out because of the James Krause thing. That is tough but I think he gets it done.
Cody Brundage, UFC middleweight: I think Moreno takes it, probably by submission.
