6th Dec 2017 by Ewan Lavender
Date: Sunday 10th December, 3am (UK)
Location: California, US
Venue: Save Mart Center
The main and co-main event at UFC Fight Night 123 feature featherweight bouts with Jason Knight and Gabriel Benitez doing the honours of setting up the main which should be an exciting encounter.
Knight has thrown caution to the wind in all his UFC fights which has been great for the fans but not his health. With a UFC record of 4-2 he has been involved in wars which have earned him three fight bonuses.
Benitez has also excited with mixed fortunes since his introduction on The Ultimate Fighter: Latin America 1. He is 3-2 in the UFC and what makes this match-up interesting is the fact that are they both lethal on the ground with a combined 23 submission victories but we have also highlighted their ‘significant strike accuracy’ as they both love to stand and bang – especially Knight who seeks the submission after delivering most of his damage on the feet first.
