UFC 263 results: Mexican Moreno makes history, Adesanya Outlast Vettori

 UFC 263 results: Brandon Moreno pushed down Deiveson Figueiredo, becomes first Mexico-born champion, Adesanya wins over Vettori.



 Brandon Moreno makes history as the first Mexico-born UFC champion by defeating Deiveson Figueiredo. 


Moreno (19-5-2 MMA, 7-2-2 UFC) emerged victorious in the flyweight title rematch against Figueiredo (20-2-1 MMA, 9-2-1 UFC) on Saturday evening, sending fans in attendance into a frenzy. 


The flyweight title bout was the UFC 263 co-main event at Gila River Arena in Glendale, Ariz. It aired on ESPN following early prelims on ESPN+ and ahead of the main card on pay-per-view.


 Moreno began the fight ready to let his hands fly early and often while the champ Figueiredo stayed defensive. Moments later Moreno completed a takedown of his own, ending up in the champ’s full guard until the conclusion of the round.


UFC middleweight champion Israel Adesanya cruised to victory over Marvin Vettori as he retained his undisputed 185-pound title in the main event of UFC 263 in Glendale, Arizona. 


The pair had previously met, when Adesanya claimed a split-decision victory over Vettori in April 2018 in the Nigerian-born Kiwi's second UFC bout..


 “For everyone in Mexico, dreams can be achieved, dreams can be achieved. Look at me now,” Moreno said in Spanish during his post-fight interview. 

“I’m so f*cking happy! Viva Mexico!”
