The 125-pounders patiently made their way through the early part of the first round trying to find their range in this important matchup, and Benavidez found it first, jarring Formiga with a quick right hand and then knocking his foe down with a left knee to the body. Formiga turtled up and took a series of unanswered blows before referee Mario Yamasaki finally stopped the fight at the 3:07 mark.
Benavidez moves to 19-3 with the win; Natal’s Formiga drops to 15-3.
