UFC 277 Julianna Peña vs. Amanda Nunes: Live results and analysis

DALLAS -- Brandon Moreno is once again a UFC champion. And once again, he appears to be on a collision course with Deiveson Figueiredo.

Moreno (20-6-2) thrillingly claimed the interim 125-pound title on Saturday, as he knocked out Kai Kara-France at the 4:34 mark of the third round with a nasty left body kick. The title fight co-headlined UFC 277 from inside American Airlines Arena. Figueiredo, the defending unified champion and a longtime rival of Moreno's, was in attendance cageside.

The UFC originally wanted Figueiredo to defend his title against Moreno this summer, but Figueiredo was unavailable due to injury.
