UFC has kept up to its promise to run live events during the covid 19 epidemics continuously. Despite annulling several shows at the beginning, the premier mixed martial arts association in the globe has had happenings just about every week from May 9.
For his initial UFC flyweight title defense, Deiveson Figueiredo has a new challenger. MMA Fighting has established with persons in the know of the amendment that Cody Garbrandt will be out of the championship fight against Figueiredo (19-1), which was anticipated to transpire at UFC 255 on Nov. 21. Replacing Garbrandt shall be the top contestant Alex Perez. Garbrandt wrote on social media that his bicep got torn and presumed to contend for the flyweight championship in 2021. Figueiredo became the UFC flyweight champ in his second try at a vacant title, beating Joseph Benavidez by submission in the first round this past July at an Abu Dhabi event. “Deus da Guerra” has currently been victorious in four straight fights.
In Perez (24-5), Figueiredo encounters a competitor who is debatably more worthy of the chance than Garbrandt. Whereas Garbrandt, a previous titleholder at 135 pounds, has on no occasion contested at flyweight, Perez has earned three straight in the division plus boasts of a 6-1 UFC record.

Who won, why, prediction?
On Nov. 21 Figueiredo (20-1) challenged Alex Perez at UFC 255 after Garbrandt pulled out from the championship fight due to an injury. Figueiredo will undertake his first defense of the UFC flyweight championship against the hard-hitting, #4 placed 125-pounder, Alex Perez. Perez substitutes previous bantamweight titleholder Cody Garbrandt, who has withdrawn from the bout. Garbrandt was eyeing to become the second combatant after Henry Cejudo to triumph in both the flyweight and bantamweight titles. Therefore, what are Perez’s odds on this night? Well, he is quite a strong fighter with the concrete nitty-gritty. He has round one wins over Jussier Formiga and Jordan Espinosa in 2020, and there are several grievances regarding him getting shot.
Perez has only been defeated once in the UFC, losing to previous numerous-time championship contender Joseph Benavidez. In Nov. 2018, he was defeated in that fight by round one TKO. Benavidez, indeed, lost two times to Figueiredo. In round two of their first contest, he got knocked out before getting submitted in round one in their rematch that got Figueiredo declared the winner. We can believe Figueiredo is too dominant and just the superior, versatile combatant in this match. He will beat Perez by TKO/KO.
