Joseph Benavidez and Jussier “Formiga” da Silva In The Works For Brazil Card

Reports coming out of Brazil are saying that UFC Flyweights Joseph Benavidez and Jussier “Formiga” da Silva will meet in September. The bout is set to to go down in Brazil on an unannounced UFC on FOX Sports 1 card on September 4th.

Globo’s SporTV was the first to report the bout. Benavidez is looking to carry the momentum of his two fight win streak into the bout against Formiga who just returned to the winning column with a win over Chris Cariaso. There has obviously been no clarification from the UFC as to where the bout will be placed on the card, but one can assume it will take place on the main card.
