When the UFC announced the flyweight division in late 2011, the first name that came to mind for most MMA pundits was Joseph Benavidez. The 29-year-old has not owned the division as many thought he would, losing to Demetrious Johnson for a second time this month in Sacramento, Calif. Where Benavidez goes from here is probably up to him. No one expects him to slink away and disappear, but at the same time, a third UFC title shot probably feels very far away right now.
