Benavidez Returns Against Ortiz in Nov.

 

The UFC's number two-ranked flyweight, former world title challenger Joseph Benavidez, will attempt to follow up his Performance of the Night effort against Tim Elliott in April when he faces off with Dustin Ortiz in a UFC Fight Night bout in Austin, Texas on November 22.

Sacramento's Benavidez has won four of his last five, the most recent victory being his first-round submission of Elliott at UFC 172. In Ortiz, he faces a top 15 flyweight who has won two straight over Ray Borg and Justin Scoggins.
