Get your sportsbook pay per head software ready for the betting action from MMA fans. It’s a leap year bout and the UFC Norfolk Fight Night is much-awaited. The evening will be headlined by a flyweight fight between Joseph Benavidez and Deiveson Figueiredo. The fight for the main card will begin at 8:00 PM ET.
Before we begin with our preview for the fight, we’re reminding you of Henry Cejudo, who is, technically, the flyweight champion. However, Cejudo relinquished his title so he can compete in the bantamweight division alone. Cejudo is the reigning champion in that division as well. The upcoming fight will be for this newly vacated title.
