Joseph Benavidez UFC 156 PostJoseph Benavidez is widely considered the No. 2 flyweight in the world, but considering he’s only one fight removed from losing to current UFC champion Demetrious Johnson, even after defeating Ian McCall, he’s not throwing his weight around… all 125 pounds of it.

“Give me a title shot and I’m going to do everything in my power to go in there and take that as well.”
