UFC Fight Night 169 started at 5 p.m. ET, and they'll all air on ESPN Plus. It’s broadcasting from the Chartway Arena in Norfolk, Viriginia.

Indeed, if you're a fan of fighting and you want to see competitive matchups, it's hard to find a better option to watch this weekend than UFC Fight Night 169.

UFC Fight Night 169 controversy
Unfortunately, Deiveson Figueiredo didn't make weight. As detailed by ESPN's Brett Okamoto, Figueiredo is penalized in two ways: 30% of his purse is forfeited to Benavidez and he now cannot win the Flyweight championship. There will be much guffawing if Figueiredo wins the match, and the Flyweight title stays vacant.
It's done. Per UFC, Figueiredo won't cut anymore. Forfeits 30 percent of his purse to Benavidez. Title fight only for Benavidez.February 28, 2020
