Benavidez (27-5), is coming-off a decision win over Dustin Ortiz at UFC Fight Night 143. Benavidez also holds a win over current flyweight champion Henry Cejudo, given that Cejudo has improved since their 2016 bout – it will still be an interesting rematch if Benavidez can get past Formiga first.

Benavidez is a former two-time title challenger, he finished his Brazilian foe Formiga with a first-round TKO in their initial scrap in 2013.
