UFC Norfolk Results: Figueiredo TKO’s Benavidez

Check out MMA News' UFC Norfolk results, featuring a main event meeting between Joseph Benavidez and Deiveson Figueiredo

UFC Norfolk went down tonight (Saturday, February 29, 2020) from the Chartway Arena in Norfolk, Virginia and we have the results. The world’s leading mixed martial arts (MMA) promotion compiled an excellent card for fight fans to enjoy. 

It was headlined by a meeting between Joseph Benavidez and Deiveson Figueiredo in a bout to see the new UFC flyweight champion be crowned but only Benavidez can win.

The co-headliner was Felicia Spencer vs. Zarah Fairn in a women’s featherweight bout.

Ion Cutelaba vs. Magomed Ankalaev in a light heavyweight bout, Megan Anderson vs. Norma Dumont in a women’s featherweight bout, and Derrick Minner vs. Grant Dawson rounded out the main card. 

Joseph Benavidez vs. Deiveson Figueiredo

Figueiredo nearly got an armbar victory in the first round but Joe got out of it. They slugged it out to round out the first slate. Joe was mixing things until they collided heads, which cut open Joe’s forehead. Figueiredo dropped him with a major league right hand. Figueiredo followed up with a flurry of strikes on the ground for the win. Figueiredo didn’t win the title due to him missing weight. 

Felicia Spencer vs. Zarah Fairn

Spencer came out, scored a takedown and landed a series of strikes to earn the TKO win. 

Ion Cutelaba vs. Magomed Ankalaev

They came out firing and Ankalaev stunned him with a head kick then fired some more strikes but Ion was wobbly and throwing shots. The referee stepped in and stopped the fight early that led to some controversy. 

Megan Anderson vs. Norma Dumont

After some clinch work up against the fence, Anderson connected with a right hand bomb that dropped Dumont and the fight was over in the first round. 

Derrick Minner vs. Grant Dawson

Dawson managed to score a takedown early in the fight but was caught in an armbar but got out of it. Minner switched out of it to a guillotine choke and once again Dawson got out of it. In the second round, Dawson got his back and locked in the rear-naked choke for the win.

It’s certain to have a great night of fights. Check out MMA News’ UFC Norfolk results below:
