Benavidez: ‘Nothing to take away from Mighty Mouse loss’

“I’m just confused about what happened. Most of all, I feel like I was (ripped off) from a good fight. I didn’t get to perform my best and fight the best guy in the world in front of millions of people. They don’t know how I could have performed. I know I was going to have a great performance. That stuff doesn’t happen every day, and that’s what you dream about (fighting) on FOX. That’s the crappy part. A loss is a loss. Winning the world title would’ve been awesome. Fighting ‘Mighty Mouse’ and just competing in there was fun.

“The losses happen, but there’s nothing to learn from it. I know to not get hit in the face. There’s nothing to take away from it.”

Unfortunately for Joseph Benavidez, he was stopped last weekend for the first time in his pro-MMA career with a brilliant punch from UFC flyweight champion, Demetrious Johnson.

But what does one learn from a situation like that? For Joe, he learns nothing…
