Benji Radach may face the toughest test in his mixed martial arts career on October 4th when he wages battle with Murilo “Ninja” Rua at CBS ElteXC Saturday Night Fights. While Benji is more known for explosive boxing and wrestling and Murilo is more known for his technical muay thai and crafty jiu-jitsu, one thing they are both known for is putting on exciting fights. After a lengthy layoff following his loss to Matt Horwich in the IFL late last year, Benji is hungry to return to action and put on an impressive performance that could possibly send him on the fast track to a title shot with EliteXC.
Pro MMA recently had the chance to catch up with Benji and talk with him for a bit about many things, including his upcoming battle with Ninja to the time he physically prevented an armed robbery attempt at a restaurant where he just happened to be eating. That’s right, Benji Radach is a real life hero. Check it out!
Pro MMA: Hey Benji Thanks for taking this time with us. We know you’re extremely busy in preparing for your upcoming fight with Ninja. How are you feeling physically right now?
Benji: Good man, everything’s healed up and coming together. It’s been a little different this time because I’m working full time as well. I was kind of spoiled when I was training full time all last year. Considering I took the fight on five weeks notice and I was completely out of shape, I’m doing pretty good.
