Latest UFC Fight Island 2: ‘Figueiredo vs Benavidez 2’ fight card, rumors

New, comments

Top-ranked flyweight contenders Deiveson Figueiredo and Joseph Benavidez will run it back for the vacant flyweight title after the Brazilian missed weight — and his chance to claim the 125-pound strap — in his headbutt-assisted win over “Joe Jitsu” last February. In addition, Kelvin Gastelum and Jack Hermansson will collide to separate contender from pretender in the crowded middleweight division.
