The Ultimate Fighting Championship has dropped the official poster for UFC 256, the final pay-per-view on the calendar for this most turbulent of years.

See it below:

UFC 256 is scheduled for December 12. It will emanate from promotion’s Apex facility in Las Vegas, Nevada, and air on pay-per-view exclusively through ESPN+.

UFC 256 will be headlined by a dynamite flyweight title fight between champion Deiveson Figueiredo and challenger Brandon Moreno. Both men are making lighting quick turnarounds, having picked up first-round victories over Alex Perez and Brandon Royval respectively at last month’s UFC 255 card.

UFC 256 will be co-headlined by a clash of top-10 lightweights, as proven finishers Tony Ferguson and Charles Oliveira collide in a bout that’s rife with title implications. Ferguson will be looking to rebound from an upset TKO loss to Justin Gaethje back in May, while Oliveira will be looking to extend a seven-fight win-streak highlighted by submissions of Clay Guida, Jim Miller, and Kevin Lee, and knockouts of Nik Lentz and Jared Gordon.

Outside of those two fights, UFC 256 features a host of other compelling matchups. Some of the highlights include a middleweight bout between Kevin Holland and Ronaldo “Jacare” Souza, a pair of strawweight bouts as Angela Hill takes on Tecia Torres and Mackenzie Dern battles Virna Jandiroba, and appearances from a long list of promising prospects.
