UFC 255 ‘Fight Motion’: Flyweight champions hold their thrones

The UFC flyweight division on both the men’s and women’s side proved again to be in capable hands at UFC 255, with champions Deiveson Figueiredo and Valentina Shevchenko defending their titles atop the card.

The main event saw Figueiredo (20-1 MMA, 9-1 UFC) tap out Alex Perez (23-6 MMA, 5-2 UFC) in less than two minutes for his first defense, while Shevchenko (20-3 MMA, 9-2 UFC) retained her belt for the fourth time, beating Jennifer Maia (18-7-1 MMA, 3-3 UFC) by unanimous decision.

Figueiredo and Shevchenko are rapidly turning into a pair of all-time greats, and their mastery is even more impressive in slow motion.

UFC 255 took place this past Saturday at UFC Apex in Las Vegas. The main card aired on pay-per-view after prelims on ESPN2 and ESPN+.
