UFC 172 Adds Benavidez-Elliott To April’s Card In Baltimore

UFC 172 Adds Benavidez-Elliott To April’s Card In Baltimore

Flyweights Joseph Benavidez and Tim Elliott have been added to the UFC 172 card later this year.

Set for Baltimore and the Baltimore Arena, the card goes down April 26. UFC light heavyweight champion Jon Jones defends his title against Glover Teixeira in the main event.

Benavidez (19-4) had his three-fight win streak snapped by UFC flyweight champion Demetrious Johnson via knockout. The KO loss was the first of his career.

Since entering the UFC in 2011 from the WEC, Benavidez has only lost twice – both of which came at the hands of Johnson.

Elliott (10-4-1) will be trying to rebound from a decision loss to Ali Bagautinov, widely-considered the next contender in the division. He had won two straight before the loss.
