I guess the saying is true… There really is no rest for the Joseph Benavidez. After fighting this past weekend and winning spectacularly, Joseph Benavidez is already booked for a quick turnaround fight in Anaheim, California next month. He will be taking on Deiveson “Daico” Figueiredo and yes, it will be in the UFC flyweight division.
Benavidez was outspoken about the impending removal of the flyweight division after his fight this past weekend; Pleading for the powers that be to keep them around. He took to social media to once again show that he’s serious about the little guys staying right where they are.

Currently, Joe is ranked #3 in the division and Daico is #5. All they can do is fight their asses off and hope that the UFC decides to change their way of thinking. Fans want them to stay put, so let’s hope the UFC listens to them.
