UFC 255 will go down in UFC Apex on November 21st, and will feature a bevy of flyweight fights – including two for titles. The headliner will see Deiveson Figuieredo defend his men’s 125-pound belt when he meets replacement Alex Perez. The original challenger was supposed to be former bantamweight champ Cody Garbrandt, but his injury allowed Perez to step up and get the opportunity.

In the women’s flyweight division, dominant champion Valentina Shevchenko will look for yet another sensational performance when she meets challenger Jennifer Maia.

The card isn’t completely full yet, despite going down in just 18 days. But it will also feature a men’s 125-pound top contender bout between Brandon Moreno and Brandon Royval that should be a contender for fight of the night.

Here’s a look at the current card:
