UFC 256 is all set to take place this weekend at the UFC’s Apex facility in Las Vegas. The event is being headlined by UFC flyweight champion Deiveson Figueiredo and contender Brandon Moreno.
It’s a highly anticipated fight as both fighters accepted to fight each other at UC 256 in less than three weeks notice. Deiveson Figueiredo is coming off of a submission win over Alex Perez at UFC 255 which took place last month.
On the other hand, Brandon Moreno also fought on the same card against Brandon Rovyal and defeated him via submission.
In the co-main event, former interim champion Tony Ferguson will take on Charles Oliveira.
It’s a mouth-watering clash for grappling fans as both fighters are elite grapplers. Both of these fighters also accepted the fight on less than three-weeks notice.
Later on the undercard, strawweight contender Virna Jandiroba and Mackenzie Dern take on each other. It’s an important fight with title implications.
