First off, great win. Although the win does little for him, considering it's over an up and coming fighter, that really had no business fighting a caliber of fighter as high as Benson. Striking - During the fight and after reviewing the footage a few times again, it's come to my attention that almost all of Benson's strikes are telegraphed way in advance. This was evident in the take down in round two when Rustam capitalized by countering with a mean punch during an attempted Benson leg kick. Take downs - Sloppy, neck open, and telegraphed. Submissions and ground control - Although he won by sub, a more masterful fighter would have finished earlier, when Benson had full back control with hooks in and couldn't seal the deal. This is like having your date pop a few xanax pills with a bottle of Jack Daniels and you still can't get no play. Conditioning - 10/10 Conclusion: Benson is still a good fighter that will beat most of the top guys in the division. Why? Because they are more sloppy than he is, which makes him better. But when you're talking top dogs of the division, Benson will lose 99% of the time.
