We have another event in Abu Dhabi after having 20 UFC bouts with 3 championships on the line in just the past 7 days.
This event will be headlined with a rematch by two elite flyweights in Deiveson Figueiredo and Joseph Benavidez for the vacant Flyweight championship. The two collided (literally) earlier this year back in February, but an accidental headbutt led to a huge gash on Benavidez that completely changed the outcome of the fight.
Will Joseph Benavidez get revenge and secure the Flyweight strap he has been chasing for all these years, or will Figueiredo get the W again?
The co-main event is another exciting match-up with young UFC star Kelvin Gastelum and Jack Hermansson. Last time out, Gastelum fell short against Darren Till, but he has stated he is more ready than ever, and he is on the hunt for gold. Like Gastelum, Hermansson is coming off a loss as well against Jared Cannonier, but with previous wins over Jacare Souza, David Branch, and Gerald Meerschaert we can expect an excited Hermansson with his opportunity to jump the ranks.
