This past Saturday night Dallas witnessed a real rarity in UFC cards as not 1, but 2 champions lost their titles. It’s been six years since that feat has happened. A packed American Airlines Center was already hyped but a stacked line-up of fights. The UFC may have Dana White as the face of it’s organization, but one of the real masterminds is matchmaker Joe Silva. His ability to create lively lineups has translated to a slew of successful shows. There are always duds along the way, but even the pre-lims on Saturday night had some exciting moments. Dallas’ own Ryan Benoit got things heated with a shocking 2nd round KO of Sergio Pettis. Sergio had dominated the first round but a timely hook by the feisty “BabyFace” Benoit led to a full barrage of haymakers before the ref broke up the beating. Benoit’s emotions got the better of him as he cheekily kicked Pettis in the butt moments after the ref ended the fight. The reply on the overhead big screen caused a stir of boos and unleashed a wild twitter attack on Benoit. His apology quelled the situation and allowed for the great fight card to keep chugging along nicely.
