The UFC is heading back to Norfolk, Virginia on Saturday, February 29th for a Fight Night event that features a championship bout in the main event. With Henry Cejudo no longer possessing the flyweight title, Joseph Benavidez and Deiveson Figueiredo will compete for the vacant belt.

This week the UFC announced that the co-main event is a women’s featherweight scrap between two fighters coming off losses, Felicia Spencer and Zarah Fairn dos Santos. I don’t know if that implies this is a #1 contender fight with the winner getting Amanda Nunes, but this is the co-main.

No bout order is confirmed beyond those two top matchups, but here is what is on tap for UFC Norfolk, which will stream live on ESPN+.

Joseph Benavidez vs. Deiveson Figueiredo
Felicia Spencer vs. Zarah Fairn
Aalon Cruz vs. Steven Peterson
Gabriel Silva vs. Kyler Phillips
Jordan Griffin vs. TJ Brown
Brendan Allen vs. Tom Breese
Mike Davis vs. Giga Chikadze
Megan Anderson vs. Norma Dumont
Sean Brady vs. Ismail Naurdiev
Marcin Tybura vs. Serghei Spivac
Ion Cutelaba vs. Magomed Ankalaev
