UFC Fight Night 28 results: Joseph Benavidez stops Jussier Formiga in one round

USA TODAY Sports

It took less than one round for Joseph Benavidez to stop Jussier Formiga via strikes at tonight's (Sept. 4, 2013) UFC Fight Night 28 event in Belo Horizonte, Brazil.

A hugely important flyweight fight went down on the main card of tonight's (Wed., Sept. 4, 2013) UFC Fight Night 28: "Teixeira vs. Bader" event on Fox Sports 1 from Belo Horizonte, Brazil, as Joseph Benavidez aimed to continue his road back to a title shot against former wannabe top contender Jussier Formiga.

Continue it he did.

That's because he made short work of Formiga, himself a potential for a future showdown with division kingpin Demetrious Johnson, avoiding his grappling game and finishing the job with a series of punches in the very first round.

Just like that, it was over.

That doesn't necessarily mean "Joe-B" is ready for another crack at the aforementioned "Mighty Mouse" but he certainly made the best case possible.
