The final UFC title fight of the year was a memorable one. Deiveson Figueiredo and Brandon Moreno produced an instant classic in the UFC 256 main event, and in the end, there was no winner.
Figueiredo (20-1-1 MMA, 9-1-1 UFC) fought Moreno (18-5-2 MMA, 6-2-2 UFC) to a majority draw in Saturday’s main event at the UFC Apex in Las Vegas. That means the Brazilian retained the flyweight title – giving him a record two defenses in 21 days – but there wasn’t the finality that’s desired out of a UFC championship contest.
Fortunately, that finality appears to be coming in 2021, with UFC president Dana White indicating an immediate rematch between the two will be necessary.
Is that the best option for the 125-pound division, though? Watch the video above for thoughts and analysis on the future of Figueiredo and Moreno after UFC 256.
