Watch UFC Fight Night 169 Benavidez vs Figueiredo live and free
UFC Fight Night 169 Benavidez vs Figueiredo is headlined by a bout for the vacant UFC Flyweight Championship. This is how you can watch.
When Henry Cejudo vacated his flyweight belt to focus on defending his bantamweight title, it suddenly opened up a major opportunity in the UFC.
Benavidez would have literally leapt at the chance as he has twice fallen short in flyweight title shots, the second of which was just over six years ago.
Figueiredo meanwhile has an outstanding record (see below) and has also earned his shot at a title. This is a match-up of two extremely athletic fighters and is likely to be one well worth watching.
There is a co-main event, pitting Felicia Spencer against Zarah Fairn in a women's featherweight stoush. Plus an Australian is on the card, women's featherweight Megan Anderson taking on Brazilian Norma Dumont

Who will win Benavidez vs Figueiredo?
We're not sure you could get two hungrier fighters than those eyeing off the opportunity of a vacated belt, rather than having to prise it out of the clenched hands of the holder.
Benavidez's career started way back in 2006 and he has been incredibly close to a world title. His record stands at 28-5 and he is riding a 3-fight winning streak.
Figueiredo has significantly less experience, but has blazed his way to a 17-1 record to earn his first shot at a championship belt.
It's a very tight fight to call but we'll lean towards Benavidez finally grabbing that belt at his third and most likely final attempt.
