Joseph Benavidez and Megan Olivi are back in the Basement today to discuss tomorrow night's championship fight, where Joe will compete for a chance at UFC gold for the first time in almost seven years, and much more! It's a great time and I'd love for you to listen.
I'm actually writing this blog from the airport right now, where I just found out that Joe's opponent - Deiveson Figueiredo - has missed weight! He hit the scales at 127.5lbs a few moments ago, sooooo...he wasn't even close.
Fight's still on, though, and Joe B is now the only one eligible to win the championship. Madness!
Off to Norfolk I go!
P.S. I'm actually flying out to this card on my own dime and knew I'd mush something somehow because of that - I've been praying the fight didn't get cancelled on some freak accident for weeks! At least it's still on! War Benavidez!
