Co-headlining the TUF 24 Finale is the grudge match between flyweight contenders Henry Cejudo and Joseph Benavidez. After building up their rivalry and talking smack for months during the reality show, in the end it was Benavidez who picked up the razor thin victory.
With the quality victory over yet another top contender, he likely gets one step closer to getting another crack at the UFC flyweight championship.
