He has no finishes in the UFC but he doesn't fight for points. He beat the shit out of Nate Diaz and Jim Miller. He's been fighting mostly elite guys since winning the WEC belt.
He handled Bocek too, IIRC. He doesn't get much cred because he has no UFC finishes and had close defences, but nothing was mentioned about the insane depth of the talent pool and how good the guys were that Benson beat (I think he beat Gil, but should have lost Frankie II).
"Look at you boy, you're covered in crap!"
"That was last week, sir. This is blood."
Bendo: a very good fighter in a very, very good division, who is very, very, very lucky with the judges.
