He pointed out that he is coming off a six-fight winning streak and still relegated to fighting in the prelims.

“There’s no other No. 1 ranked fighter in the world with six wins in a row in any weight class, of any individual in the UFC that would be the third fight on the card, just buried. There’s not another person. There’s not another weight class where a person would be shoved down like that. It doesn’t effect the fight but I just want to know why?. I can’t make sense of it at all,” he said.

Benavidez further went on to say about the poor state of the division.

“There’s not a state of the division. There’s nothing to talk about. A matchup that would be good to promote or put out there for people to watch is buried on the undercard, which I think is wild,” he added.
