Fists will fly later tonight (Sat., Dec. 12, 2020) at UFC 256 live on ESPN+ PPV from inside UFC APEX in Las Vegas, Nevada. as reigning UFC flyweight champion Deiveson Figueiredo defends his title for the second time in just 21 days when he meets Brandon Moreno in the main event.
Adding to the main card madness will be a co-headliner pitting former interim UFC lightweight champion Tony Ferguson against the red-hot Charles Oliveira, who has won seven-straight fights all by way of finish. The winner of this 155-pound scrap should be in line for a title shot in 2021, or at least a true No. 1 contender’s bout.
Before the action unravels live on ESPN+ PPV from “Sin City,” the promotion has released the latest and greatest episode of UFC 256 “Embedded,” which can be seen in the above video player. This time around the action focuses on final fight preparations, weight cuts, staredowns, and some very special holiday singing from former UFC heavyweight champion Junior dos Santos.
From the official YouTube description:
Tony Ferguson connects with Forrest Griffin at the UFC PI. Junior Dos Santos sings carols – and hits mitts – by the fire. Brandon Moreno has a relaxed weight cut. All the athletes make weight on Friday morning, then face off in front of Dana White.
