The UFC has put together a rock solid PPV offering this week in their UFC 255 card, that probably won’t sell worth a damn outside of the hardcore fan base. A pair of flyweight title fights cap the whole thing off, with Deiveson Figueiredo defending his belt for the first time, against contender Alex Perez. In the co-main, flyweight queen Valentina Shevchenko looks to further cement her legacy as one of MMA’s most dominant champions against Jennifer Maia. A top contender bout between Katlyn Chookagian and Cynthia Calvillo helps round out the action with a couple likely slobberknockers.
