UFC Sydney Winner Ryan Benoit Has Three Post-Fight Casts, Hospitalized After K.O. Victory

While Ryan Benoit walked away with one of only three finishes to come out of Saturday’s fight night, the fighter sustained some heavy damage in the process.

UFC Fight Night 121 went down Saturday night, Nov. 18, inside the Qudos Bank Arena in Sydney, Australia. The 13 fight event only featured three finishes, as every other fight ultimately went the distance.

UFC flyweight Ryan Benoit earned a stunning knockout over Ashkan Mokhtarian in the final round of their match up. Now the fighter has taken to Instagram to reveal that he received some serious injuries from the victorious performance.

“Sticks and stones will break your bones…. how come momma never told me that a super tough opponent with a strong chin and head will also. Traveling across the world and changing time zones is no joke this week was a grind and tough adjusting to the jet lag and prepping for a midday fight. The ?? people have been great. Time to rest up and heal up. Be back soon ??”
