The poster for UFC flyweight champ Deiveson Figueiredo’s record-breaking turnaround is official for the Dec. 12 pay-per-view event.

The UFC on Thursday released the poster for the winter fight card, which marks the shortest time between title defenses for a UFC champion. Figueiredo notched his first flyweight title defense less than two weeks ago at UFC 255 and afterward agreed to face Brandon Moreno – who picked up a first-round win over Brandon Royval on the same card – just three weeks later at UFC 256.

Second-billed on the winter fight card, but certainly not second-fiddle in many fans’ minds, is a pivotal lightweight matchup between ex-interim champ Tony Ferguson and surging Charles Oliveira. Ferguson returns after a brutal loss to Justin Gaethje at UFC 249 that ruled him out of a long-awaited fight with Khabib Nurmagomedov. Oliveira, the most prolific submission artist in UFC history, hopes to secure his first bid for the belt against the durable Ferguson.
