2020 UFC event schedule: Israel Adesanya vs. Yoel Romero, Joseph Benavidez vs. Deiveson Figueiredo headline

After a 2019 filled with sport-changing moments, the UFC's calendar for the first quarter of 2020 shows no signs of things slowing down for the world's premier mixed martial arts organization. And one event in, things appear to be going just fine. Conor McGregor made his return to the Octagon with a 40-second TKO of Donald "Cowboy" Cerrone to open up endless possibilities for the former champ. Plus, Jon Jones was pushed to the limit by Dominick Reyes in an incredible 205-pound title fight.

Now we head to Norfolk for a vacant flyweight title fight as Joseph Benavidez takes on Deiveson Figueiredo in the main event of UFC Fight Night 169.

The next PPV will see another pair of title fights on the marquee as middleweight champion Israel Adesanya battles for title challenger Yoel Romero on March 7 from Las Vegas. Plus, women's strawweight champ Weili Zhang takes on former champion Joanna Jedrzejczyk.
