Joseph Benavidez-Jussier Formiga Likely For UFC On FS1 3

An interesting flyweight bout is likely to take place in Brazil this September, as Globo is reporting Joseph Benavidez and Jussier Formiga for the third UFC on FOX Sports 1 card.

The event is set for September 4, though no location has been confirmed. So far, no bouts have been made official for UFC on FS1 3 by the promotion.

Benavidez (18-3) is 2-0 since a split decision loss to Demetrious Johnson for the vacant UFC flyweight title. He finished Darren Uyenoyama and scored a decision over Ian McCall already this year.

Formiga (15-2) is 1-1 in his Octagon career, falling to John Dodson and defeating Chris Cariaso.
