Deiveson Figueiredo put in an impressive performance against Joseph Benavidez.

After an entertaining back-and-forth first round, Figueiredo knocked out Benavidez in the second round of their vacant flyweight title fight in the UFC Norfolk headliner on Saturday.

The finish came after a headbutt which bloodied Benavidez right away with Figueiredo dropping him afterwards with a right hand that landed on the button.

Regardless, the Brazilian came away with the victory — although he wasn’t eligible to win the title because he missed weight.
