Gabriel Benitez gets ready to slam Humberto Bandenay at UFC Chile on Saturday

The nickname “Moggly” might not carry quite the same intimidation factor as “Rampage”, but even Quinton Jackson would be impressed by Gabriel Benitez’s work at UFC Chile.

Benitez (21-6) showed no mercy for opponent Humberto Bandenay (14-5, 1 NC) at the Movistar Arena in Santiago on Saturday, lifting the 23-year-old fighter from the canvas and brutally dropping him back down to set up a knockout finish.

Defending against an armbar, Benitez stayed calm before setting up the slam that visibly rocked Bandenay and left him open for follow-up strikes that ended the fight 39 seconds into round one.

“Moggly” scored his first knockout win inside the Octagon and has now won three of his last four fights.
