Brandon Moreno beat Deiveson Figueiredo at UFC 283 to reclaim the unified flyweight title but fans in Rio de Janeiro were left fuming with the decision.

Moreno was forced to run from the arena after reclaiming the unified flyweight title at UFC 283. Fighting in the co-main event in Rio de Janeiro, Moreno was a head two rounds to one on the scorecards when the doctor refused to allow Figueiredo to come out for the fourth.

Figueiredo was suffering with a badly swollen eye, with many suggesting it had come from an illegal eye poke, though was later proved to be legitimate. But home fans were left fuming as their fighter was deemed the loser

After celebrating his victory in the octagon, Moreno was speaking to UFC commentator Daniel Cormier as boos rained down. Moreno left the cage, it appeared to be booze that was raining down on him as fans appeared to hurl bottles in his direction while he fled.
