A pivotal flyweight tilt pitting Brandon Moreno against Alex Perez has been added to the UFC 255 lineup.

Milenio was first to report the booking. UFC 255 will be headlined by a flyweight title tilt between Deiveson Figueiredo and Cody Garbrandt. In the co-main event, Valentina Shevchenko will defend her women’s 125-pound championship against Jennifer Maia.

Moreno is unbeaten in his last four professional outings and is coming off back-to-back decision wins over Kai Kara-France and Jussier Formiga to establish himself as a serious person of interest at 125 pounds. The 26-year-old Mexican is 17-5-1 over the course of his professional career.

A competitor on Season 1 of Dana White’s Contender Series, Perez has been victorious in five of six Octagon appearances, with his only defeat coming at the hands of Joseph Benavidez. The 28-year-old Team Oyama representative last competed at UFC 250, where he scored a leg-kick TKO of Formiga on June 6. Perez is 24-5 as pro, with 12 wins coming inside the distance.
