Deiveson Figueiredo calls for ‘dream fight’ against former UFC champ after UFC 300 win

Deiveson Figueiredo, in a recent interview with Canal Encarada, expressed his desire for a dream fight against UFC legend Dominick Cruz, targeting a showdown at UFC 303 in June. Figueiredo sees Cruz as a significant challenge who could potentially propel him towards a title shot. However, Cruz has yet to respond to Figueiredo’s callout, and his return to the Octagon remains uncertain.

Cruz, who last fought in August 2022 with a TKO loss to Marlon Vera, hasn’t hinted at a comeback date. His previous victories over Pedro Munhoz and Casey Kenney showcased his enduring skills, but his absence from competition has left his future in the UFC uncertain.

For Figueiredo, a matchup against Cruz represents an opportunity to further solidify his standing in the bantamweight division, which has seen a recent influx of talent. With his addition to the bantamweight title conversation, Figueiredo aims to demonstrate his readiness for top-tier competition and potentially secure a path to a championship bout.

Considering Figueiredo’s reputation as a formidable opponent for both bantamweights and flyweights, a bout against Cruz could serve as a pivotal moment in his career, potentially positioning him for a shot at becoming the No. 1 contender in the division.
