incredibly talented fighter and martial artist.
Although his unbeaten record is a myth, he has 4 losses that I’m aware of.

this fight was stopped due to a “riot” but look at Benny get Dropped hard with a head kick [keyed up]

He teaches privately at the LA Fitness near van Nuys. I use to see him from time to time. Still very intense look. In great shape for his age. Strange looking guy nonetheless tho.

Probably the GOAT American kickboxer with Don Wilson a close 2nd.
