Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) will return to host its final pay-per-view (PPV) event of the year as UFC 256 goes down tomorrow night (Sat., Dec. 12, 2020) live on ESPN+ PPV from inside UFC APEX in Las Vegas, Nevada.
The main event will feature a flyweight clash between current UFC champion Deiveson Figueiredo and top contender Brandon Moreno. Lightweight veterans Tony Ferguson and Charles Oliveira will meet in the co-headliner with the winner likely getting No. 1 contender rights at 155 pounds.
In advance to UFC 256, UFC president Dana White joined media members following Friday’s official weigh ins (full replay HERE) for his usual pre-fight scrum. From Conor McGregor’s upcoming Octagon return at UFC 257 to Tony Ferguson’s loss to Justin Gaethje earlier this year, White discussed a little bit of everything in what may end up being his final media scrum of 2020.
