The UFC returns to pay-per-view Saturday night, with UFC 255 and a pair of flyweight championship fights atop the bill.
UFC 255 takes place at the UFC Apex in Las Vegas and streams on pay-per-view following prelims on ESPN and ESPN+.
In the main event, men’s 125-pound champion Deiveson Figueiredo (19-1 MMA, 8-1 UFC) makes his first title defense against Alex Perez (24-5 MMA, 6-1 UFC). And in the co-headliner, women’s 125-pound champ Valentina Shevchenko (19-3 MMA, 8-2 UFC) looks to continue her run of dominance with a sixth consecutive win in her fourth title defense against Jennifer Maia (18-6-1 MMA, 3-2 UFC).
The third episode of “Embedded” follows the big-name stars at the top of the card. Here’s the UFC’s description from YouTube:
Mike Perry, Jennifer Maia, Katlyn Chookagian and Joaquin Buckley land in Vegas with victory — and grocery shopping — in mind. Valentina Shevchenko reflects on what it took for her to become champion as she starts fight week with sister Antonina.
