UFC 256 is in the books and it saw several great fights, including the main event that delivered what was dubbed as the greatest flyweight fight in the promotion’s history. Deiveson Figueiredo technically defended his title, but the back and forth war with Brandon Moreno was officially ruled a draw. He was deducted a point for a particularly nasty groin shot, that had Moreno looking like he was going to throw up.

Also on the contest were impressive performances from Charles Oliveira, Kevin Holland and Ciryl Gane that will probably shoot them up the rankings and establish themselves as new contenders in their respective divisions.

Here’s a quick twitter thread with a brief recap and analysis of the event, that’s fitting for people’s social media era attention spans:
