Deiveson Figueiredo vs. Alex Perez

In the main event for UFC 255, new flyweight champ Deiveson Figueiredo (19-1) will battle Alex Perez (24-5). 

Figueiredo was originally schedule to fight former bantamweight champ Cody Garbrandt, but the latter had to withdraw due to a bicep injury. Figueiredo secured the flyweight belt Henry Cejudo vacated a while back, by choking out Joseph Benavidez in July.

Perez, meanwhile, stopped Jussier Formiga with leg kicks in June and has won three in a row.

In the co-headliner, flyweight queen Valentina Shevchenko (19-3) will battle Jennifer Maia (18-6-1). 

Shevchenko took out Katlyn Chookagian in February and has won five in a row. Maia, meanwhile, is coming off a submission win over Joanne Calderwood in August. Prior to that she lost via decision to Chookagian in November.
