UFC 256

UFC Flyweight kingpin, Deiveson Figueiredo, will make the quickest turnaround in championship history (three weeks) when he collides with No. 1-ranked division contender, Brandon Moreno, in the main event of UFC 256, which takes place inside UFC Apex in Las Vegas, Nevada. The highly-anticipated showdown will mark the conclusion of the promotion's pay-per-view (PPV) events schedule, closing out a complicated and tumultuous 2020 fight season. In UFC 256's ESPN+-streamed PPV co-main event, perennial Lightweight contender, Tony Ferguson, will attempt to get right back into the 155-pound title chase at the expense of No. 7-seeded Charles OIiveira, winner of seven straight bouts. We'll stockpile all the real-time UFC 256 updates, odds, start time, tickets, weigh ins, predictions, previews, video highlights, press conferences, winners, losers and much more from "Sin City" right here before, during and well after the live show concludes.
