UFC held the weigh-ins yesterday for today’s UFC on ESPN+ 30 event. The fight card will be held later today at the Flash Forum in Abu Dhabi. The event will be streamed live on ESPN+. Both Deiveson Figueiredo (125 pounds) and Joseph Benavidez (125 pounds) came in on weight for their scheduled rematch for the vacant flyweight title.

Earlier this year, Figueiredo knocked out Benavidez in their bout that was previously meant to crown a new flyweight champion. However, Figueiredo failed to make weight for the fight, so he could not win the title. However, he did make weight here, so the title fight will move forward as planned. Here are the full weigh-in results and video:
