UFC Bantamweight Joseph Benavidez

Did you know the UFC was headed to Austin, Texas on November 22? That’s OK. Nobody did until Tuesday when the promotion announced former flyweight top contender Joseph Benavidez (pictured) was facing Dustin Ortiz in the event.

Benavidez is victorious in eight of his last 10 outings. Both of the Team Alpha Male’s losses during his current stretch came in title tilts to reigning champion Demetrious Johnson.

Ortiz has won three of four since joining the UFC. He’ll be riding a two-fight winning streak into the biggest bout of his young career.

No other bouts have been reported for the lineup.

A venue has not been announced for the show. Furthermore, it is unknown if UFC Fight Pass, Fox Sports 1, Fox Sports 2 or some combination of the three will make the event available for live viewing.
