TORONTO - Joseph Benavidez certainly was in strangling distance seated beside Michael Bisping during UFC 152's pre-event press conference.
But despite a tirade and promise from Bisping to issue payback to Benavidez for saying he was a harder puncher, the two jovially squashed their beef.
"The strangling has already taken place," Bisping said. "We have photographic evidence on Joseph's phone. I strangled him. We've settled our differences."
