- It's time to determine a new Champion. #UFC #UFCNorfolk
UFC is headed to Norfolk for the UFC Fight Night 169 event. However, before the event can even take place, there has been controversy surrounding the event after the main event had to be changed up in the light of Deiveson Figueiredo missing weight.
Henry Cejudo vacated the UFC Flyweight Championship and a fight was finally taking place to replace him, with two deserving Flyweights, Deiveson Figueiredo and Joseph Benavidez competing for the title at UFC Fight Night 169. Unfortunately, at the weigh-ins, Figueiredo was not able to make weight, missing the 125 lbs mark by 2.5 lbs. With that being the case, after some debate, it was decided that Benavidez would be fighting Figueiredo for the title, but the title would only be up for grabs for him.
According to reports, Figueiredo missed weight because of a medical condition, but whatever be the case, it has cost him one of the best opportunities of his life.
There's a lot more going on in this card as well, as the fans eagerly wait for it. Read on to know everything that you need to know to watch UFC Fight Night 169.
