UFC 172 is filling up quickly, and a fantastic Flyweight matchup has just been announced. Former #1 contender, Joseph Benavidez, will look to get back in the win column when he takes on Tim Elliott in Baltimore.

Good fight

Probably too much for Elliot at this point though.

This fight makes perfect sense right now. Both are coming of a loss and there is no need for Benavidez to potentially take out any other top contender at this point.

Should be a great fight though.

I am for the complete opposite...despite looking weird and fighting weird there is nothing that fascinating about Elliott for me.

Same. It's too bad he doesn't have another shot at MM, or at least not for a while. Obviously, I'm looking past Elliot, but I think Joey B vs Dodson in the future would be fantastic.

Cool fight but it would be pretty surprising to see Benvidez lose here.
Elliot is tough as hell though! I don't think he'll get finished

Joey B has to start somewhere after getting knocked out cold in his last outing.

Elliott is a tough guy but he is no where near ready for Benavidez in my opinion but I could be wrong

Poor Elliott...look at who he's faced in the UFC, this is his 5th fight and he's already faced Dodson, Gaudinot, Bagautinov and now Benavidez

Seriously. It's pretty crazy.

I hope he K.O's Joe but I doubt it will happen
