Cody Garbrandt Out of UFC 255 With Torn Bicep; Figueiredo Gets New Opponent

UFC 255, which is set to take place on November 21 at the UFC Apex in Las Vegas, Nevada, has undergone a change to the main event.

According to multiple reports, former bantamweight champion Cody Garbrandt has been forced out of his matchup with flyweight champion Deiveson Figueiredo. The news was first reported by Brazilian news outlet Combate.

Garbrandt confirmed on social media that he suffered a torn bicep earlier this week and he is aiming to return in 2021.

Stepping up in Garbrandt’s place will be top contender Alex Perez, who was originally set to face Brandon Moreno on the same card.

There is no word on whether Moreno will remain on the card with a new opponent or if the UFC will keep him as a potential replacement for Figueiredo or Perez moving forward.

In the co-main event, women’s flyweight champion Valentina Shevchenko will defend her title against top contender Jennifer Maia.

With news of the latest shakeup, a look at the updated UFC 255 fight card can be seen below.
