Brandon Moreno’s first TKO win in the UFC came with a big prize.

Moreno (18-5-1 MMA, 6-2-1 UFC) stopped Brandon Royval in the first round of their Nov. 21 flyweight bout at UFC 255 in Las Vegas.

It was a dominant showing, as Moreno bested Royval on the feet and on the ground. Although Royval suffered a shoulder injury late in the round that hindered his performance, Moreno was able to prove why he’s a top contender in the UFC’s flyweight division all the way up until the finish.

Immediately after his win over Royval, Moreno was booked to fight UFC flyweight champion Deiveson Figueiredo in the main event of UFC 256. Figueiredo also competed Nov. 21 at UFC 255, when he defended his title for the first time with a submission win over Alex Perez.

UFC 256 takes place Saturday at the UFC Apex in Las Vegas. The main card streams on pay-per-view after prelims on ESPN2/ESPN+.
