UFC 256 Results: A point deduction cost UFC flyweight champion Deiveson Figueiredo a victory in the main event against Brandon Moreno.

Figueiredo and Moreno were pressed into action just three weeks after they both earned victories at UFC 255 and the two men put on a fight for the ages in Las Vegas on Saturday night.

A low kick that landed flush in Moreno’s groin cost the champion a point and perhaps the fight but the all-out war was something to behold. Moreno indicated after the bout that he would be keen on getting a rematch.
