Incredible, but indecisive.

UFC commentator Jon Anik pretty well summed up what was a late entry for “Fight of the Year” and certainly one of, if not the best, flyweight UFC fights in octagon history when Deiveson Figueiredo and Brandon Moreno went five rounds in the headliner of UFC 256.

A point deduction for an accidental groin kick wound up the decisive factor when the scorecards were tallied, with two judges scoring the bout 47-47 for the majority draw. A third judge had it 48-46 for the champ, who retained his belt with no winner declared.

Here’s how fighters reacted to the headliner and main card fights of UFC 256.
