UFC on ESPN+ 30: Figueiredo vs. Benavidez 2 live results from Fight Island
UFC on ESPN+ 30: Figueiredo vs. Benavidez 2 takes place on Saturday, July 18, on Fight Island on Yas Island, Abu Dhabi. UFC on ESPN+ 30 is the Ultimate Fighting Championship’s third of four events during a 15-day span on Fight Island.
UFC President Dana White and Company restarted the professional sports world with UFC 249: Ferguson vs. Gaethje on May 9 followed by two more events in Jacksonville, Fla., all within an eight-day span. UFC 251: Usman vs. Masvidal kicked things into gear on Fight Island on Saturday, July 11.
UFC on ESPN+ 30 features a re-run of the flyweight championship bout from earlier this year that was supposed to have determined a new champion. Deiveson Figueiredo defeated Joseph Benavidez in their first match-up, but was ineligible to win the belt vacated by retired champion Henry Cejudo after he failed to make weight for the fight.
The miss in weight coupled with a controversial head-butt left the UFC quickly signing an immediate rematch, which will take place in Saturday’s main event on Fight Island. This time, hopefully, there will be a new champion crowned.
