Deiveson Figueiredo Defeats Joe Benavidez via Vicious TKO

In the main event of the evening, Joseph Benavidez (28-5) takes on Deiveson Figueiredo (17-1) in a catchweight bout. Because Figueiredo came in at 127.5 lbs, 2.5 pounds over the flyweight title fight limit, he will not be eligible to win the Flyweight title.
