Two of the top flyweights in the world will finally meet at UFC 156 as Joseph Benavidez squares off against Ian McCall on Super Bowl weekend 2013.

Sources close to the fight confirmed to MMAWeekly.com that verbal agreements are in place for the Feb 2 showdown.

Benavidez and McCall have been long attached to one another even before either of them were fighting at 125lbs in the UFC.

This is the fight I expected for the belt after the 4 man tourney, I'm glad it's happening, should be non-stop fun to watch.

I would really love to see Ian McCall as the flyweight champ, I hope this is his first step on the way back to the title
