Joseph Benavidez gets another crack at the UFC flyweight title in a matchup with Deiveson Figueiredo at UFC Fight Night Norfolk on Saturday, Feb. 29. Watch his most recent knockout victory over Jussier Formiga from last June.

Benavidez, a perennial flyweight title contender, will get another crack at UFC gold when he squares off with Figueiredo. He has fought twice for the belt in the past, losing both bouts to Demetrious Johnson.

Johnson eventually lost the belt to Henry Cejudo before moving on to ONE Championship. Cejudo has now relinquished the title, opening it up for Benavidez and Figueiredo to battle for the belt in Virginia.
