The main event features Deiveson Figueiredo, the men’s flyweight champion, who will make the fastest turnaround in UFC championship history after beating Alex Perez just three weeks ago at UFC 255. He will face off with Brandon Moreno on December 12, 2020 at the UFC Apex facility in Las Vegas, Nevada.
After making a quick return, the reigning champ Figueiredo hopes to end 2020 with a bang by taking out top-ranked contender Brandon Moreno, who is the first Mexican-born fighter to compete for a UFC title.
After swiftly beating Alez Perez on November 21, Figueiredo planned to return to his native Brazil when everything changed. UFC offered him a quick-turn fight against Brandon Moreno. The unstoppable and unhurt Figueiredo quickly accepted and has been in Las Vegas ever since.
Figueiredo and Moreno are making quick returns to the in effort to save the event after several other planned title matches were all forced off the card. For Figueiredo, a victory would move him to 4-0 in 2020, and may lock him up as Fighter of the Year.
Flyweight contender Brandon Moreno comes to the headliner with a nine-year MMA career that is still motivated by the events of 2018. Moreno started MMA training at age 12 while working part-time in his family’s piñata business, where he inherited his parent’s work ethic, which helped him climb up the UFC rankings. Working in the business helped Moreno pay for his training, and it served as a financial lifeline after Moreno was cut by the UFC in 2018 and his newborn daughter needed surgery.
