Flyweights fly high as Figueiredo and Shevchenko shine at UFC 255


The 125ers took centre stage at the UFC Apex as UFC flyweight champions Deiveson Figueiredo and Valentina Shevchenko both defended their titles at UFC 255. Figueiredo showed once again his ability to finish a fight in an instant, while Shevchenko was forced to work a lot harder than many anticipated as she returned from injury to continue her reign.

On this week’s show, we take a look back at both title fights, as well as the other key matchups from the UFC 255 card in Las Vegas, as we recap the penultimate pay-per-view event of the UFC’s 2020 schedule.

There’s much to be excited about moving forward, with some huge fights booked at lightweight, including official confirmation of Conor McGregor’s return to face old adversary Dustin Poirier, plus Tony Ferguson’s upcoming clash with Charles Oliveira.

We also take a look at the best of the action away from the UFC octagon, with Bellator, Invicta FC and LFA all producing notable moments during the week.
