UFC 255 is ready to go with Deiveson Figueiredo up against Alex Perez in a big bout live on TV in November.


Figueiredo was supposed to be up against Coby Garbrandt before the former Bantamweight champion tore a bicep, meaning Perez had to step up from fighting Brandon Moreno on the undercard to the main event.

The 32-year-old Figueiredo has been highly active in recent times with five bouts to his name since March 2019, culminating in back-t0-back Flyweight Championship clashes with Joseph Benavidez. Figueiredo won both times.

Perez's only defeat since 2016 came against Benavidez, though his last fight was an impressive victory over Jussier Formiga – the only man to ever defeat Figueiredo.

It promises to be an exciting night and Perez will be desperate to make the most of his huge opportunity. has rounded up everything you need to know about how to watch UFC 255 on TV and online.
