Deiveson Figueiredo will be defending his men's flyweight championship for the second time in 21 days when he takes on Brandon Moreno in the main event of UFC 256 on Saturday at the promotion's Apex facility in Las Vegas.

The main card starts at 10 p.m. ET on pay-per-view, which fans can purchase here. Prelims are on ESPN2 and ESPN+ starting at 8 p.m., with an early prelim on ESPN+ at 7:30 p.m.

Figueiredo (20-1) defeated Alex Perez by guillotine choke in less than two minutes on Nov. 21 at the UFC's most recent pay-per-view event. He has won five fights in a row, including a first-round choke of Joseph Benavidez in July that earned the Brazilian the 125-pound title.

Moreno (18-5-1) also fought at UFC 255, defeating Brandon Royval by first-round TKO. He is unbeaten in his last five bouts.

Figueiredo is No. 2 in the ESPN men's flyweight rankings, behind only former champ Demetrious Johnson, who now competes in One Championship. Moreno is right behind at No. 3.

Saturday's co-main event is the much-anticipated return of Tony Ferguson, coming off a May loss to Justin Gaethje that ended a 12-fight winning streak. Ferguson faces Charles Oliveira, who has won seven in a row, all finishes. Ferguson is ESPN's No. 3-ranked lightweight, and Oliveira is ranked ninth.
