The first two UFC events on Fight Island have been pretty explosive events, and the third in the series looks set to be every bit as exciting, with a tantalising fight card to look forward to.
The title fight between Deiveson Figueiredo and Joseph Benavidez will be the highlight as many – a rematch of their earlier Flyweight Championship fight in February, which was won by Figueiredo, but the title remained vacant since he had missed weight.
Figueiredo will be favourite to win the fight again this time and finally claim the title, but with Benavidez sure to be keen on revenge the result is far from a foregone conclusion.
That fight is joined on the main card by a number of other high profile bouts, with Jack Hermansson vs. Kelvin Gastelum and Marc Diakiese vs. Rafael Fiziev among the other highlights.
And there’s also the exciting prospect of several intriguing match-ups on the preliminary card, with the heavyweight bout between Sergey Spivak vs. Carlos Felipe, which had originally been scheduled for UFC 250 on May 9th, among the highlights.
