Even If He Scores Third Straight Win, Joseph Benavidez Not Obsessing Over Title Shot

By Sherdog.com Staff Sep 3, 2013
Joseph Benavidez, on “Beatdown,” discussing whether he deserves to be in the flyweight title conversation if he beats Jussier da Silva:

“It’s just something I’ve learned to not obsess over. I can’t control that. Going for the title or even winning and losing, just the result of things, I can’t control that, so I try not to obsess over it. I look at the fight in front of me, the practice in front of me, and I know that’s going to get me better. … If I’m doing everything right, whatever is supposed to happen is going to happen. … Yes, I can ask for a title shot, but that’s not something I do. I just like to take every day as it is and just kind of let things play themselves out.”
