UFC 255 Odds for Title Fights

Deiveson Figueiredo vs Alex Perez

Figueiredo (-290) makes the first defense of his flyweight title following a first-round submission victory over Joseph Benavidez in July. Figueiredo is 8-1 at the UFC level with six of his eight wins coming via finishes. The man nicknamed "Deus Da Guerra" (Portuguese for God of War) has terrific knockout power for this weight class, along with top-notch submission skills. 

Perez (+235) is on a three-fight win streak and is fresh off a victory over Jussier Formiga at UFC 250 in June, where he finished Formiga in the first round with leg kicks. The 28-year old is 24-5 in his career, including 6-1 since entering the UFC in 2017.

Perez comes from a wrestling background and averages 3.20 takedowns per 15 minutes, but is also a strong technical striker. 

 

Valentina Shevchenko vs Jennifer Maia

Valentina "Bullet" Shevchenko (-1,200) is a massive favorite to successfully defend her belt for the fourth fight in a row. The 32-year-old is 19-3 in her career, including 8-2 since joining the UFC. With a background in kickboxing and Muay Thai, Shevchenko is a terrific striker, who is fresh off a TKO win over Katlyn Chookagian in February, 

Maia is a huge underdog at +750, despite being the No. 3 contender in the women's flyweight rankings. The former Invicta FC flyweight champ is 18-6 in her MMA career, but just 3-2 in the UFC since making her debut in 2018. She's coming off a submission win over Joanne Calderwood, bouncing back from a unanimous decision loss to Chookagian last November.
