UFC 256 just wrapped up in Las, Vegas Nevadas, and the card delivered from the undercard all the way to the main event.

In the main event of the evening, Deiveson Figueiredo put his title on the line against Brandon Moreno. The two men gave us a fight for the ages and certainly a fight of the year contender. Both men had their moments and fought at a pace that only flyweights could maintain. The fight ended in a majority draw in favor of Deiveson Figueiredo who retains his title. Talks of a rematch have already made rounds in the MMA world and everyone seems to agree with that. Of course, both fighters will need some time to rest after making a 3 weeks turnaround to fight tonight.

In the co-main event of the evening, a passing of the guard happened at the top of the lightweight division. Tony Ferguson who was for a long time considered the boogeyman of the division, was simply manhandled by Charles Oliveira tonight. Oliveira pieced up Ferguson on the feet and dominated him on the ground like nobody before him. We might be looking at the decline of Tony Ferguson after his second loss in a row, but on the other hand, Charles Oliveira seems to have come into his own as of late. He now enters the top 5 of the division for the first time and will look to compete for a title very soon.

Here are some of the reactions from pros:
