Fresh from a spectacular win over Alex Perez on November 21, UFC flyweight champion Deiveson Figueiredo makes a historically fast turnaround to defend his belt for the second time against Mexico's Brandon Moreno in the main event of UFC 256 on December 12.  

Winner of three in a row, including a first-round stoppage of Brandon Royval on the same UFC 255 card headlined by Figueiredo, "The Assassin Baby" now has his sights set on the champion from Brazil, who has quickly established himself as a dominant king at 125 pounds. 

Plus, perennial lightweight champion Tony Ferguson returns to battle surging Brazilian star Charles Oliveira in a Fight of the Year candidate.
