Gabriel Benitez and Justin Jaynes will both look to come back from losses on November 14th, as they have been paired up for a UFC “Fight Night” card. News of the bout was first reported by Carlos Contreras Legaspi of Milenio.
While the location of the event has not been announced, it is expected to take place in Las Vegas, Nevada, USA.
Benitez is the more experienced UFC fighter of the two, having competed in the promotion nine times since his entrance in 2014. After a loss last May to Omar Morales, Benitez finds himself on a two-fight streak of losses for the first time since 2013.
Jaynes is still in his rookie year in the UFC, entering his third fight in the promotion. He made his UFC debut last June, stopping Frank Camacho in under a minute. He returned in August, dropping a bout to Gavin Tucker.
