UFC Fight Night 143 Results: Joseph Benavidez Outworks Dustin Ortiz, Wins via Unanimous Decision

Not knowing whether the flyweight division would still be there this year, Benavidez made sure this fight had all the good things to remember. He impressively outworked Dustin Ortiz for the entire 15 minutes of the fight in the striking and ground game. Benavidez’s grappling was on point as he stuffed take downs, neutralized the offense and socred six takedowns. He landed a big left hand that dropped Ortiz in the late first round. Ortiz managed to get hold of a rear-naked choke in the final seconds of the second round, but Benavidez avoided the pressure with his wrestling skills. Benavidez and Ortiz earlier met in 2014 and the fight ended in the same fashion.
