Although it’s not a high-stakes pay-per-view event, UFC Fight Night 173 has some exciting matches featuring top MMA talent. The headliner on the main card is a rematch between Deiveson Figueiredo (18-1) and Joseph Benavidez (28-6), the UFC’s two top-ranked flyweights who faced off earlier in February. At that UFC Fight Night, Figueiredo held onto his rank as the No. 1 UFC flyweight when he defeated the second-ranked Benavidez via a second-round TKO.
The co-main event at UFC Fight Night 173 is a bout between American fighter Kelvin Gastelum and Swedish-Norwegian combatant Jack Hermansson, both seasoned middleweights on the UFC roster who each boast impressive records. However, both men are also walking into the Octagon at UFC Fight Night 173 following defeats: Gastelum, with a record of 16-5, has lost three of his past five fights (including both of his most recent ones), while Hermansson (20-5) suffered a TKO loss in his fight against Jared Cannonier in September in what was the main event for UFC Fight Night 160.
