Deiveson Figueiredo vs. Joseph Benavidez to run it back for the flyweight belt

Deiveson Figueiredo and Joseph Benavidez will fight again for the UFC flyweight title following their initial bout this year.

The rematch will be taking place on July 18, but the venue is yet to be confirmed.

The former flyweight champion Henry Cejudo was stripped of his title last year and UFC said Benavidez and Figueiredo will battle for it.

They fought at the end of February at UFC Fight Night 169, but the Brazilian couldn’t make weight so he was ineligible to become champion. The 35-year-old Benavidez was the only one who could get the belt around his waist, but the 32-year-old Figueiredo TKO’d him in the second round.
