UFC 255 is loaded up with title fights this November, so fans need to know how to watch the Figueiredo vs. Perez live stream. This UFC Pay-Per-View event has two championship bouts on the main card, including both the Men’s and Women’s Flyweight titles.
In the Main Event, the newly crowned champ Deiveson Figueiredo makes his first title defense, but since it took him two wins to claim the belt he should be ready for anything. He will face a dangerous striker in Alex Perez, who knocked out the only fighter to ever beat Figueiredo in the pros. Will that give him the confidence he will need to take the title away? You can stream it all as they trade kicks Saturday Night with UFC 255 Pay-Per-View featuring Figueiredo vs. Perez in the ESPN app.

Deiveson "God of War" Figueiredo (19-1) is the UFC Flyweight Champion, but it wasn’t an easy road for him to reach the top of the division. Figueiredo cruised before joining the UFC with 11 straight wins, and started 4-0 in UFC to gain a lot of attention. However Jussier Formiga scored a unanimous decision over Perez in March of 2019 to give Deiveson his first ever loss.
This Brazilian fighter bounced back, winning his next two fights and earning a title shot in a fight against Joseph Benavidez this February. While Figueiredo won that bout, he was unable to claim the vacant title because he came in overweight. He was disappointed, but undeterred so he set a rematch with Benavidez in July. Figueiredo was able to knock his foe down three times in the first round, and hand Benavidez his first ever submission loss once he locked in a rear naked choke. Don’t let the 126 lb weight limit fool you — Figeiredo is as tough and vicious as fighters twice his size.
Alex Perez (24-5) is the fourth ranked UFC Flyweight contender, and a product of Dana White’s Contender Series who has worked long and hard to reach this point. Perez fought six years in smaller promotions as he worked his way towards a UFC contract, building up a 17-4 record. After winning his way into a contract with the promotion, he won his first three fights in the UFC mixed between Flyweight, Bantamweight and a catchweight fight.
Perez had his only loss in the UFC in his fourth fight, as Joseph Benavidez knocked him out in the first round in November of 2018. Since that loss, Perez is 3-0 including a huge last win over the only fighter to beat Deiveson Figueiredo in the octagon, Jussier Formiga. He took out Formiga with his powerful calf kicks, so look for that to be a potential strategy for Perez against Fiegueiredo.
UFC 255 is more than just one big fight, and it also features a second championship title fight.
Valentina Shevchenko (19-3) vs. Jennifer Maia (18-6-1) is a fight that’s sure to have fans buzzing during the walkouts. Shevchenko has been the UFC Women's Flyweight Champion for two years, and she’s been in search of anyone to give her a worthy challenge since she beat Joanna Jędrzejczyk to earn the belt. She is number three on the UFC Women’s Pound-For-Pound rankings, but she hasn’t fought since February of this year.
She faces her third ranked challenger in Jennifer Maia, who is a Brazilian mixed martial artist and boxer. She scored a huge submission over Joanne Calderwood in her last fight that earned her Performance of the Night. She missed weight in two of her last three fights, but if she makes weight for UFC 255, expect her to be a live opponent for the title.
