John Dodson Blitzes Ryan Benoit In BKFC KO Win

Former UFC veterans John Dodson and Ryan Benoit fought at Bare Knuckle FC 28, with “The Magic Man” making short work of his opponent.

BKFC 28 took place Saturday night, with the main event featuring Christine Ferea defeating Taylor Starling via TKO. The co-main event showcased two familiar names to MMA fans, with former UFC flyweight title challenger John Dodson taking on Ryan Benoit.

With 40 seconds remaining in the very first round, the fight was called to a close. This came after Dodson had dropped a battered and scarred Benoit twice. Dodson unleashed a barrage of punches with reckless abandon, with Benoit having no answers for the speedy flurry that came his way.
