UFC Fight Night 169: Joseph Benavidez vs Deiveson Figueiredo Odds & Picks
The UFC is heading back to Norfolk, Virginia on Saturday, February 29th for a Fight Night event that features a championship bout in the main event. With Henry Cejudo no longer possessing the flyweight title, Joseph Benavidez and Deiveson Figueiredo will compete for the vacant belt. This week the UFC announced that the co-main event is a women’s featherweight scrap between two fighters coming off losses, Felicia Spencer and Zarah Fairn dos Santos. I don’t know if that implies this is a #1 contender fight with the winner getting Amanda Nunes, but this is the co-main.No bout order is confirmed beyond those two top matchups, but here is what is on tap for UFC Norfolk, which will stream live on ESPN+.

Prediction

Deiveson Figueiredo is simply a beast.  He is 17-1 right now and on a run. He has so many wins by knockout and submission. Not only that, he's very fast and explosive. Joesph Benavidez the other hand,  he is a tough fighter; he makes knockout and submission wins but Deiveson is in his prime right now. This is the flyweight division so we do see Deiveson moving very fast and pull off the knockout. It is going to be a back and forth fight as Joseph Benevidez does play with heart, but like we said we see Deiveson Figueiredo getting this win. 

To top it off, Deiveson Figueiredo is +135 at Bovada Sportsbook. Take Figueiredo, its a good opportunity to win with plus money.  if your feeling a little gutsy take Deiveson Figueiredo by Knockout. You can probably double-up your money. Stay tune for when those odds are available. 

Prediction: Deiveson Figueiredo via KO

Pick: Deiveson Figueiredo +135 (Bovada Sportsbook)
