Joseph Benavidez will have fine-tuned his game plan this time, but the reality is if you want to beat Demetrious Johnson, you have to be better than him everywhere on that given night. One specific strategy is not going to work. You have to accept the fact that for every 10 punches you throw, you might land three. If you take him down, chances are he's popping right back up. A well-stocked gas tank is key, as Johnson's speed can be mentally and physically exhausting to go against. Benavidez is the best finisher in this division, though. He's one of maybe two flyweights who can match Johnson in a scramble and his striking defense is better than what we saw in the first fight.
