UFC 256 odds are shifting with just one week to go until the event on December 12. 

After several main events were canceled, Deiveson Figueiredo will headline his second UFC pay-per-view event in a row, this time as he defends his flyweight championship against Brandon Moreno. MMA odds opened with Figueiredo as a -300 favorite while Moreno comes back at +240. 

We bring you the UFC betting odds for every confirmed bout and check back as we update this page with UFC fight odds for every bout on the rest of the card as they are announced. 

Where Will UFC 256 Take Place?

UFC Fight 256 will take place at the APEX facility in Las Vegas, Nevada. The octagon at the APEX has a diameter of 25-feet, making it five feet smaller than the standard UFC cage.

Who Is Fighting At UFC 256?

The COVID-19 pandemic has played havoc with UFC scheduling in 2020 and the final pay-per-view event of the year is no exception.

Three fights originally planned for UFC 256 have been cancelled with Angela Hill, Karl Roberson Dwight Grant and Jared Vanderaa all testing positive for COVID (Hill has been replaced by Sam Hughes so Tecia Torres will still have an opponent).

Nonetheless, the main card has stayed intact with Tony Ferguson vs. Charles Oliveira,  Junior dos Santos vs. Ciryl Gane, Kevin Holland vs. Ronaldo "Jacare" Souza, and Mackenzie Dern vs. Virna Jandiroba, all still expected to take place.

Even the preliminary card should have some good tilts with Renato Moicano taking on Rafael Fiziev and Cub Swanson facing Daniel Pineda.

UFC 256 Odds for Main Event and Co-Main Event

Deiveson Figueiredo vs Brandon Moreno

Figueiredo (-334) will make his second defense of his flyweight title following a first-round submission victory over Alex Perez just three weeks before. Figueiredo is 9-1 at the UFC level with seven of his nine 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. 

Moreno (+250) also fought just three weeks ago and also won via first-round stoppage by knocking out Brandon Royval. The "Assassin Baby" is now 4-0-1 over his last five fights.

Despite being just 27 years old at the time of this fight, Moreno has 24 MMA fights under his belt and three of his five career defeats came when he was still a teenager. He's a well-rounded fighter that combines high-level grappling with crisp boxing. 

Tony Ferguson vs Charles Oliveira

Tony Ferguson (-170) is currently No. 3 in the lightweight rankings, despite getting pummeled in his previous fight against Justin Gaethje in May. Prior to that knockout loss, "El Cucuy" had won 12 consecutive fights in the UFC with nine of those victories coming by finish.

Ferguson is one of the most entertaining fighters around, combining unpredictable striking with incredible pace and high-level submissions. He has received Fight of the Night or Performance of the Night bonuses in eight of his previous nine bouts.

Charles Oliveira (+140) is No. 6 in the lightweight division and is on a seven-fight winning streak, most recently a submission win over Kevin Lee in March.

With an extensive background in BJJ, Oliveira is one of the best grapplers in the world and holds the UFC record for wins by submission with 14.
