UFC 256: Figueiredo vs Moreno aired live in Asia from Las Vegas on Sunday, December 13. The final numbered event of volatile 2020 was an incredible day full of stunning finishes and high-level MMA action.
In the main event, UFC flyweight champion Deiveson Figueiredo made his second title defense in just three short weeks against #1 contender Brandon Moreno in a blistering five rounds that President Dana White called "the greatest fight in the history of this division". The super-close fight was judged a majority draw, and therefore Figueiredo keeps his title.
"I want the rematch, I know he wants the rematch because he’s a warrior like me, so we can do it again... Obviously, I feel weird, because I wanted the title. At the same time, I feel so happy because everybody said it was an amazing fight. I wanted the victory, but it is what it is. I feel happy, I’m healthy, I can go with my family and stay with them, celebrate Christmas, stay with my three kids, with my wife, right now that’s the most important thing for me,” Moreno said after the fight.
In the co-main event, #7 Charles Oliveira bested former interim lightweight champion and #3 ranked Tony Ferguson across all three rounds, establishing himself as a future contender for the UFC lightweight title.
"Nobody has done to Tony Ferguson what I just did. I'm proving that I have what it takes to be champion and that I will be champion next year,” Oliveira noted.
