Deiveson Figueiredo vs. Joseph Benavidez

Fight Island 2 will take place on July 18th, on Yas Island, and it will feature a rematch between Deiveson Figueiredo and Joseph Benavidez for the vacant flyweight title.

The two fought for the first time in February, and Figueiredo (18-1) won via second round, stoppage. Since the Brazilian fighter missed weight, however, he was ineligible to win the belt.

In addition, an accidental headbutt dazed Benavidez (28-6) shortly before the fight was stopped, which is another reason the UFC’s gone with a rematch.

You can check out the poster below, which also features middleweights and co-headliner, Kevlin Gastelum and Jack Hermansson.
