Examining Travis Hamonic's free-agent profile

  Examining Travis Hamonic's free-agent profile So why is Hamonic still unsigned? He didn’t help his cause during the regular season when he had just a dozen points in 50 games.  Again, the 30-year-old is more of a stay-at-home player, but that output is still pretty low for someone who played over 21 minutes a night.  The fact that he opted out of the NHL’s return to play for family reasons also lingers, not in the sense that prospective suitors are holding that against him but that it may be affecting his willingness to commit somewhere at this time.

A brilliant Brazilian champion nicknamed ' God of War ' has changed everything. Deiveson Figueiredo stopped Alex Perez with a guillotine choke in the first round at UFC 255 on Saturday night Figueiredo claimed his title earlier this year with his second consecutive victory over Joseph

Deiveson Figueiredo headlined the behind-closed-doors UFC 255 show at the UFC Apex in Las Vegas, defending his UFC flyweight title against Alex Perez.

It was the third time Figueiredo fought in 2020, having beaten Joseph Benavidez in back-to-back bouts — the last of which was a bloody submission win on Fight Island in July which impressed the UFC boss Dana White so much the American promoter called it "pure violence."

In his first defense of the flyweight title, Figueiredo needed only one minute and 57 seconds to wrap-up his win, forcing a first round submission.

"Call me master of the wizards," he said after his victory was confirmed.

"I promised my master that I would do this, I told them that this would happen and this was exactly what I was going to do," said the 32-year-old Brazilian. "So I trained for that and that's exactly what happened."

He continued: "We changed our stance because he never saw me kick in previous fights, but I knew that I could kick him, but he never had that on film."

The win punctuates a career-best year for Figueiredo

Figueiredo has been an unstoppable force in 2020, besting Benavidez twice and swatting Perez to the side this weekend.

The fighter's performance-level shines a spotlight on a division which could have been neglected since one former long-reigning champion Demetrious Johnson left for One Championship, and another — Henry Cejudo — retired.

But in Figueiredo, the UFC has a top tier fighter who is proving to be a well-rounded mixed martial artist and one who can tap into one of the company's strongest markets — Brazil.

Figueiredo's year to date is already strong enough for him to present a case as the Fighter of the Year, however, he is not yet done with 2020.

"I want to face Brandon Moreno, Dana make this happen … that's the fight that I want to happen," he said.

And Figueiredo's wish appears to be White's command, as the UFC seemingly intends to keep Figueiredo in Las Vegas so he can defend the flyweight championship one more time in December.

"We're going to keep him here," White told reporters at the post-event press conference. "He's not going to fly back to Brazil. We're going to turn him right around."

According to ESPN, Figueiredo will fight the No.1 contender in the 125-pound weight class Brandon Moreno at UFC 256, the next pay-per-view event, at the UFC Apex.

Both fighters have verbally agreed to the bout agreement, the sports network reported Sunday.
