"This is the fight I've waited for since I got in the WEC. It feels great to get a win off him coming off his (Bowles) loss knowing he was going to come in determined and inspired and bring everything [he had]. I always thought I was going to win this fight, I always thought I matched up really good with (him). Honestly, a month before I told all my team mates 'I'm going to guillotine Miguel' . Whatever the WEC wants but I'd love to go in and avenge my only loss [to Dominick Cruz] and I thought it was a great fight we had before and I know I can go in there and beat him. My goal is to become world champion and he has the belt right now so I get to avenge a loss and reach my goal."
12-1 WEC bantamweight standout Joseph Benavidez, whose only defeat came during an action-packed 135-pound war with Dominick Cruz last August, talks about his dominant performance against former division champion Miguel Torres, who succumbed to a second round guillotine from the Team Alpha Male fighter at last night's WEC 47 event in Columbus. Now Benavidez wants to avenge his only loss and become world champion -- which he can now do with one fight following Brian Bowles TKO loss to Cruz on the same card. Who takes the rematch?
