UFC 255 Betting: Figueiredo vs. Perez Betting Information
Deiveson Figueiredo is set to make his first title defense after winning the UFC flyweight championship just this July 2020 after beating Joseph Benavidez in the first round with a rear-naked choke. This was their second matchup in their careers and Figueiredo even improved as compared to their first encounter just February of this year. He is now on a four-fight winning streak after tasting his first defeat in his career back in March 2019 against Jussier Formiga. Figueiredo is a swiss army knife of moves as he can win on the stand-up and the ground. This Brazilian fighter from Soure, Para will be representing his own stable at Figueiredo Team.
Alex Perez has risen up to the flyweight standings and he is carrying a three-fight winning streak in this upcoming fight against Deiveson Figueiredo. His only defeat since August 2016 was against Joseph Benavidez back in 2018. In his last three fights, he was able to defeat Mark De La Rosa, Jordan Espinosa and Figueiredo’s only conqueror Jussier Formiga in his most recent fight with a leg kick knockout in the first round. He is only 28 years old and could form a rivalry with Figueiredo along the way. He will be bringing a 24-5 professional MMA record and expect him to use his resiliency as most of his fights are won through judges’ decisions. Perez is a natural flyweight that came from Lemoore, California in the USA.
