Two of the best flyweights in the world did battle in the co-main event of last night’s (Dec. 4, 2016) The Ultimate Fighter (TUF) 24 Finale, as two-time title challenger Joseph Benavidez squared off with former title challenger and former Olympian Henry Cejudo.
The two went toe-to-toe for three rounds in an extremely close fight, but it was ultimately Benavidez who walked away with the decision, although some felt as if “The Messenger” should’ve been awarded the contest.
Two low blows cost Cejudo a point in the first round, which two judges scored 9-9, but one judge surprisingly gave Benavidez a 10-8 round in the first frame.
