The final UFC Pay-Per-View event of the year—UFC 256: Figueiredo vs. Moreno—streams exclusively on ESPN+ PPV this Saturday, December 12 at 10 p.m. ET from UFC APEX in Las Vegas. The main event features the quickest turnaround for a champion or challenger in a UFC title fight—21 days. On Nov. 21, less than two hours after he successfully defended his flyweight title against Alex Perez at UFC 255, Deiveson Figueiredo (20-1) verbally agreed to defend his belt against top contender Brandon Moreno (18-5-1) in this Saturday’s event.
Saturday’s co-main event is the much-anticipated return of Tony Ferguson, coming off a May loss to Justin Gaethje that ended a 12-fight winning streak. Ferguson faces Charles Oliveira, who has won seven in a row, all finishes. Ferguson is ESPN’s No. 3-ranked lightweight, and Oliveira is ranked ninth.
Saturday’s coverage begins with the early prelims on ESPN+ at 7:30 p.m. ET and the prelims at 8 p.m. across ESPN2, ESPN Deportes (Spanish), and ESPN+ (English and Spanish).
On Friday, UFC Live will air on ESPN2 at 5:30 p.m., providing fans with exclusive insights and views on the biggest stories heading into UFC 256.
