Live: UFC Fight Island 2 media day video for ‘Figueiredo vs Benavidez 2’ in Abu Dhabi

Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) will once again ask top flyweight contenders Deiveson Figueiredo and Joseph Benavidez to slug it out for the vacant 125-pound title, recently abandoned by former two-division kingpin Henry Cejudo.

The means to that end is a five-round headliner on “Fight Island” this Sat. night (July 18, 2020) in Abu Dhabi, which streams exclusively on ESPN+. Figueiredo scored a technical knockout victory in their first go-round, but failed to capture the crown because he missed weight.

Both fighters will be front and center for today’s virtual media day, alongside middleweight co-headliners Jack Hermansson and Kelvin Gastelum, who collide for a spot in the crowded 185-pound title chase.

10:00 a.m. Deiveson Figueiredo
