Deiveson Figueiredo faces Joseph Benavidez again for a second shot at the vacant flyweight title. This is how you can watch the UFC live.
Deiveson Figueiredo and Joseph Benavidez meet for the second time following their match-up back in February. Figueiredo won that bout with a second-round TKO and should have taken the flyweight title belt vacated by the retired Henry Cejudo.
Unfortunately Figueiredo didn't make the required weight so he left empty-handed. Now the rematch headlines the third of four events taking place at UFC Fight Island in Abu Dhabi in July.

Who will win Figueiredo vs Benavidez 2?
Figueirido (18-1 record) must be so eager to make the weight and leave with the belt he will feel he should have claimed the first time around. Alternatively, Benavidez (28-6) must be buoyed by the second chance at glory few people ever earn. Benavidez has fallen short in four previous title shots, but we'll back the American to make it fifth time lucky in this one.
