Joseph Benavidez will be stepping in the Octagon on November 22nd to face #12 ranked Dustin Ortiz at UFC Austin.
Benavidez recently picked up a win over Timothy Elliot back at UFC 172 in April, earning himself a performance of the night bonus. Prior to that he fought Demetrious Johnson for the Flyweight title but was stopped in the first round.
Dustin Ortiz on the other hand is riding a 2-fight win streak into his bout against Benavidez. After an unsuccessful UFC debut against John Moraga in January, Ortiz picked up back to back split-decision wins against Ray Borg and Justin Scoggins.
