The co-main fight is also a rematch as flyweight champion Deiveson Figueiredo (20-1-1) will face off against Brandon Moreno (18-5-2). The two battled to a high-action draw in December in one of 2020’s top “Fight of the Year” contenders. Moreno is riding a five-match unbeaten streak while Figueiredo hasn’t lost in his last six bouts.
Calling the live action for UFC 263 will be lead play-by-play announcer Jon Anik, alongside color commentary specialist Joe Rogan and former lightweight fighter Paul Felder. Megan Olivi will handle reporting duties.
