Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) flyweight contenders Joseph Benavidez and Henry Cejudo will collide later tonight (Sat., Dec. 3, 2016) in The Ultimate Fighter 24 Finale co-main event inside “The Pearl” at Palms Casino Resort in Las Vegas, Nevada.
There’s a strong argument that places Benavidez (24-4) high on the pound-for-pound list, as the veteran’s only career losses come to the top two ranked men. Since his second loss to Demetrious Johnson, Benavidez has taken out five straight contenders, and he’s on the hunt for a third title opportunity.
Cejudo (10-1) entered his title shot opposite "Mighty Mouse" with an undefeated record and impressive credentials, which caused many to give him a real chance to dethrone the Flyweight kingpin. It didn’t exactly go his way, and now the wrestler looks to return to the win column.
Check out their fight video preview above.
