    UFC flyweight champion Deiveson Figueiredo and Brandon Moreno have officially verbally agreed to fight at UFC 256 on Dec. 12, per multiple sources.

    The flyweight title fight will join the previously-booked bantamweight title fight between champ Petr Yan and Aljamain Sterling.

    That Dec 12 card is pretty good if it actually holds up, probably the last time we saw a card this good was 249

    What a fucking beast.

    Guess he’s as active with accepting challengers as he is trying to finish his opponents once the fight starts.

    Two warriors! Moreno is to tough to finish so have to go with the sushi chef by decision.

    Fig was losing on the feet vs Perez. Moreno will easily win Fig.

    Fig is such a beast fighter. He is the next Aldo level fighter imo.

    That's awesome. Looks like he could follow Anderson Silva's, Aldo's, and the Nogueira bros' and open a restaurant after his fight career is over.

    Casul, you thought that because of the volume of punches, but figgy always had a low volume of punches but high knockout rate.

    He doesn't need to throw punches to farm points, he demolishes his enemies, God of War.
