UFC Norfolk Weigh-in Results: Joseph Benavidez Hits His Mark, Deiveson Figueiredo Loses Chance to Win Title
Disaster has struck for Deiveson Figueiredo, as the flyweight contender missed weight today in Norfolk, and can no longer win the 125 title on Saturday.
Figueiredo has missed weight
The fighters have hit the scales in advance of UFC Norfolk tomorrow, and since Figueiredo came in at 127.5 pounds for the headliner, he is ineligible to win the vacant flyweight crown. The man who will face him in the bout, Joseph Benavidez, can win the belt, as he came in at 124.5 for the fight.
Suffice to say, it’s a pretty big setback for Figueiredo.
