Ryan Benoit Says He’s Aiming For “Highlight Reel Knockouts”

Ryan Benoit is scheduled to fight Ben Nguyen on Saturday at UFC 193 and recently spoke about his career in an interview with FOX Sports. He made it clear that he’s here to make it to the highlight reels.

“I’m still early in my career and early in my contract so before I start getting into the top five guys, I’d like to get top five pay,” Benoit told FOX Sports. “I don’t want to get in a bad situation where I get somebody that’s too tough, too early and when I do beat them and I’m still stuck in my lower contract. I kind of game planned this with my manager that we want to keep fighting the right type of fights for the right type of pay.

“I’m trying to make as much money as I can while I’m here. To do that, I need to have entertaining fights, I need the highlight reel knockouts,” Benoit said. “I may not always get it but I always go for it.”

You can see Benoit (8-3) in action at UFC 193 on November 14, 2015 from Etihad Stadium in Melbourne, Australia.
