UFC 256 Weigh-Ins: Deiveson Figueiredo and Brandon Moreno Make Championship Weight

The leading mixed martial arts organization in the world is back this weekend, with UFC 256. This is the results of Friday’s early weigh-ins.

In an unprecedented fashion, flyweight champion Deiveson Figueiredo will be headlining two consecutive pay-per-view events when he competes at UFC 256. This time around, he will be facing off against top contender Brandon Moreno, after both men earned quick victories in their UFC 255 contests. In addition to this exciting 125b title fight, the co-main event is a pivotal matchup at the top of the lightweight division, as Tony Ferguson looks to rebound from his first loss in seven years when he takes on the always dangerous Charles Olivera. This event has had some setbacks over the last few weeks, but all things considered this is a pretty decent event from top to bottom.
