Watch highlights from the UFC 263 title fight.

The first of two title rematches at UFC 263 was Deiveson Figueiredo vs Brandon Moreno 2. Their first bout was a back and forth barnburner that ended in a draw. This fight had the same elements, and same entertainment, but Moreno got a slick back take that Figueiredo wasn’t able to scramble off. He is now the first Mexican UFC champion.

Watch highlights from the bout below, along with a snippet from our play-by-play of the event.
