UFC full fight video: Deiveson Figueiredo defends title with quick submission of Alex Perez

Watch Deiveson Figueiredo vs. Alex Perez full fight video to see how Figueiredo fared in the first defense of his flyweight title in the main event of UFC 255 on Nov. 21 in Las Vegas.

After twice defeating flyweight stalwart Joseph Benavidez to become champion, Figueiredo’s first test as champion would be streaking contender Perez. A replacement for Cody Garbrandt, Perez was a game challenger, but he fell prey to the dangerous submission game of “Deus da Guerra.” Less than two minutes into the fight, Figueiredo locked in a tight guillotine to add a successful championship defense to his growing list of accomplishments.

This Saturday, just three weeks after defeating Perez, Figueiredo makes the fastest turnaround ever for a UFC champion when he steps back into the cage to take on Brandon Moreno in the UFC 256 main event.
