Fights in the flyweight division are always exciting to watch and we should be treated to another exciting prospect as Ryan Benoit takes on Roberto Sanchez in a fight placed on the undercard of UFC 228. These are two very fast and exciting fighters and they have both been involved in some very entertaining contests. This should be another entertaining contest which will produce a great fight.
Ryan Benoit enters this fight with a professional MMA record of 10 wins and 5 losses. This is not a great record but the American has shown great potential in his victories and that is something to get excited about. Benoit won his last duel with a kick to the head which showed the great agility and strength available to the American. He will need to display a similar level of skill if he wishes to get his 11th MMA win.

On the other side of the coin, Roberto Sanchez will look to maintain his impressive record of 8 wins and 1 loss. Sanchez is a very promising fighter and he has been rising up the UFC rankings over the past 2 years. Sanchez is a Texas native and that should mean he will be the fan favorite of the American Airlines Arena crowd. Being supported by the crowd is a massive boost in MMA and I think it will give Roberto Sanchez a big advantage in this fight.
This should be a very interesting fight. Ryan Benoit is the more experienced fighter while Roberto Sanchez is the more skilled fighter. In this case, I think skill will trump experience which means I am picking Roberto Sanchez as the winner of this fight. I am expecting this fight to be decided by the judges since fights in the flyweight division rarely end early.
