Tonight’s UFC 256 event was headlined by a flyweight title fight featuring champion Deiveson Figueiredo taking on challenger Brandon Moreno.

Figueiredo (20-1 MMA) had earned his first career title defense at last month’s UFC 255 event, when he defeated Alex Perez in the very first round with a guillotine choke. That victory marked the Brazilians fifth in a row, and fourth consecutive finish.

Meanwhile, Brandon Moreno (18-5-1 MMA) had also most previously competed at UFC 255, where he earned a first-round TKO victory over Brandon Royval. ‘The Assassin Baby‘ had gone 4-0-1 in his past five fights overall ahead of tonight’s UFC 256 headliner.

Tonight’s UFC 256 main event proved to be one of the greatest fights in UFC history. Deiveson Figueiredo and Brandon Moreno went to absolute war for twenty-five straight minutes with both men coming close to earning a finish. In the end, a low blow proved costly for the champ as he was deducted a point that led to a majority draw ruling from the judges in attendance.
