There will be plenty for Benavidez to discuss at the Q&A session, specifically due to the fact UFC on FOX 8 is headlined by a flyweight championship contest as divisional titleholder Demetrious Johnson puts his belt on the line for a second time against John Moraga.
"Joe-Jitsu" has a vested interest in the championship affair as he could very well be the next one to challenge for the belt with a victory over Formiga at UFC Fight Night 28 in September.
On top of the upcoming championship fight, there's a good chance Benavidez will talk about a potential rematch with "Mighty Mouse," the changes to his training since Duane Ludwig was hired as a head coach at Team Alpha-Male and much, much more.
Benavidez is one of the few stars of the 125-pound weight class and is sure to have a lot to say - so don't miss it.
MMAmania.com will provide LIVE round-by-round, blow-by-blow coverage of the entire card on fight night (Sat., July 27, 2013), starting with the Facebook "Prelims," which are scheduled to begin at 4 p.m. ET, right on through the FX-televised under card bouts and then main card action, which is slated to air at 8 p.m. ET on FOX.
