A new UFC Flyweight Champion was crowned at Saturday’s UFC 290 event in Las Vegas.
In the co-main event, Alexandre Pantoja defeated Brandon Moreno by split decision (46-49, 48-47, 48-47) to win the flyweight championship for the first time. Moreno had held the title for 163 days, defeating Deiveson Figueiredo by TKO at UFC 283 back in January of 2023. With the win, Pantoja is now the sole UFC champion from Brazil after Amanda Nunes retired last month.

He asked his father if he was proud of him. After his interview, his children came to the octagon as they all hugged.
