Benavidez TKOs Urushitani, advances to flyweight title fight
If you paid attention to the odds, this bout really had no reason to even take place. Benavidez was favored huge at the sportsbooks, as high as -900 by fight time. Were the oddsmakers right?
Of course they were.
Benavidez started strong and finished even stronger, nearly submitting his opponent in the opening round with a rear-naked choke before finishing him with strikes in the opening moments of the second frame. Wam, bam, thank you ma’am.
