Former UFC champion shares medical report to verify eye injury after controversial eye poke claim.

The first quadrilogy in UFC history came to an end on January 21. Deiveson Figueiredo and Brandon Moreno’s bout presented the audience with fast-paced, exciting action.

An unfortunate doctor stoppage caused the Brazilian to lose his belt despite putting on a brave performance.

As a result of a right eye injury brought on by a left punch from Moreno, Figueiredo was unable to continue. The former champion claimed in an Instagram post that he had suffered an orbital fracture.

Furthermore, the fracture may need surgery to repair the damage caused. The medical reports also impose a 6-month medical suspension, so it may be some time before fans see Figueiredo back in the Octagon.

Notably, UFC 283 was a pretty violent event. On the UFC’s Rio de Janeiro fight card, a total of 7 bouts finished in T/KOs. As a consequence, the athletes suffered significant injuries. Consequently, a long list of medical suspensions was made public by the Comissao Atletica Brasileira de MMA (CABMMA), which was in charge of organizing the event.

The 35-year-old uploaded an image of his medical report on Twitter. According to the report, Figueiredo is suspended for 180 days or until cleared by a new face CT scan. However, he must take a minimum but mandatory 45 days off from the mat.

The post stated, “Report made today by athlete Deiveson Figueiredo, our champion requires care and is being closely cared for by Dr @RogerioPenin Any new information we update. Advice @dnsbusinesss”

The 21-3-1 record holder previously detailed the injuries he sustained in the back-and-forth match at the Jeunesse Arena in an Instagram post. Figueiredo will be away from training for at least six months, according to the post.
