Best bets for UFC 256: Figueiredo-Moreno

By Lou Finocchiaro  ( 


UFC 256 from Las Vegas on Saturday is the last pay-per-view event of the year. Originally scheduled for 12 bouts, the production now has 10 competitive fights on tap. Throughout the challenges of 2020, the UFC has been tenacious about presenting the sport to the masses in a safe environment.

Last week’s fight slate was hugely affected by cancellations, and it’s unfortunate that the fight I released with John Allan + 190 actually went off. Allan fought as well as he could but got decisioned by a better fighter, which happens. We turn the page now to UFC 256.

Deiveson Figueiredo -290 vs. Brandon Moreno +  250 

Flyweight (125 pounds) Championship

Champion Figueiredo has a chance to be the most dominant flyweight champ since Demetrious Johnson. He is unusually large for the division and cuts weight aggressively to make the 125-pound limit. Figueiredo possesses profuse striking power with arms, elbows and leg kicks, and he buttresses those bludgeoning wallops with unrelenting pressure and bad intention.

Most Figueiredo opponents either force themselves into a mistake as Alex Perez did three weeks ago or they wilt under his aggression and pressure as Joe Benavidez did two fights back.
