The UFC's flyweight division has put on some solid matches so far, and two of its top three fighters will be squaring off at UFC 156 on Super Bowl weekend. MMA Weekly is reporting that Joseph Benavidez and Ian McCall have verbally agreed to the face each other. |
Benavidez and McCall were two of the four fighters involved in the UFC's flyweight championship tournament. McCall fought Demetrious Johnson twice, once to a controversial majority decision draw and once to a unanimous decision loss. Benavidez fought Johnson in the finals after beating Yasuhiro Urushitani. He also lost to “Mighty Mouse” via decision at UFC 152.
Arguably the #2 & #3 in the UFC's Flyweight division; should be one hell of a fight.
