A new flyweight champion will be crowned at UFC Norfolk.

The company released the poster for its upcoming Fight Night show in Norfolk, Va., on Feb. 29, highlighting the 125-pound championship showdown between Joseph Benavidez and Deiveson Figueiredo.

The belt, who once belonged to Henry Cejudo, was vacated in late 2019. Benavidez (28-5) went 9-1 since the last time he challenged for the gold, while Figueiredo (17-1) gets his first crack at the title following wins over Alexandre Pantoja and Tim Elliot.
