The UFC flyweight division has a new king after Brandon Moreno submitted Deiveson Figueiredo in the co-main event of UFC 263 to win the 125-pound championship. The win also launched Moreno to the No. 1 ranking at flyweight in the CBS Sports UFC Divisional Rankings.

Moreno dominated the action against Figueiredo, who entered the fight as a favorite. The fight was a rematch of a December clash between the two that ended in a majority draw. With his victory, Moreno became the first Mexican-born fighter to win a UFC championship.

In the night's main event, welterweight champion Israel Adesanya successfully defended his title in a rematch with Marvin Vettori. Vettori was unable to use his wrestling to neutralize Adesanya's technical striking game and suffered five rounds of leg kicks for his trouble. Adesanya remains the clear No. 1 fighter at 185 pounds with his victory.

Saturday's UFC Fight Night card features just one fight featuring CBS Sports ranked fighters.

  • Featherweight: No. 6 Korean Zombie vs. No. 10 Dan Ige
